Ordinary Eternal Machinery

Ordinary Eternal Machinery

i drove 20,000 miles just to find my way back home

and the only thing i’ve learned is to admit what i don’t know

and for every single place i’ve been there’s still a million left to go

 

so let me go to the places that i’ve never been before

just let me go, i don’t know who i am or what i’m fighting for

let me go, when i’ve got no place to rest my head

i’ll remember what the ghost said

 

i spent money i don’t have

on shit that i don’t need

to prove to people i don’t like

that i’m who they think i should be

there must be something more to life

at least there must be more to me

 

so let me go to the places that i’ve never been before

just let me go, i don’t know who i am or what i’m fighting for

let me go, when i’ve got no place to rest my head

i’ll remember what the ghost said

i’ll remember what she said

she said nothing will ever be as bad as it seems when your skies turn grey

nothing will ever be as good as it seems on your best day

 

all these rituals and habits

these daily routines

just the flesh in this ordinary eternal machine

we are dust, we are stars

and we are everything in between

 

so let me go to the places that i’ve never been before

just let me go, i don’t know who i am or what i’m fighting for

let me go, when i’ve got no place to rest my head

i’ll remember what the ghost said

i’ll remember what she said

she said nothing will ever be as bad as it seems when your skies turn grey

nothing will ever be as good as it seems on your best day
