Hundreds of Ways

  • What a thing to be a witness to the sunshine
    What a dream to just be walking on the ground
    What a time to live among the ashen remnants of our love
    It came before and I'm still looking for that now

    It took centuries to build these twisted cities
    It took seconds to reduce them down to dust
    And all the tour guide could say was
    "Take your pictures folks it's late, try your best please to remember what was done."

    Don't look so forlorn
    Don't you look so scared
    Don't get so upset
    This world was never fair

    But there are hundreds of ways
    To get through the days
    There are hundreds of ways
    Now you just find one

    I used to think that time was of the essence
    Now I just wish I could get some sleep
    All this strange parade of sounds the city makes when I lay down
    Little explosions that set fire to my dreams

    Sometimes I get mistaken for this actor
    And I guess that I can see it from the side
    Maybe no one really seems to be the person that they mean to be
    I hope I am forgotten when I die

    Don't contradict me
    Don't make me cross the line
    If you feel threatened
    It's only 'cause I might

    But there are hundreds of ways
    To get through the days
    There are hundreds of ways
    To get through the day
    Yes, there are hundreds of ways
    So you best find one

    All my hero's they're all talk
    Running in circles
    Some stop watch some cast
    Love was the message. Full stop

    We ramble on and on
    We ramble on and on

    I stole all the rhinestones out of Carolina
    Sold them out in Bakersfield for cash
    The bandshell got a band sounds like an arcade in Japan
    Blew all my quarters trying to get that feeling back

    Now any sucker can turn boredom into violence
    A sociopath riding on a bus
    His irises are black from his novelty contacts
    He looks around but he can't see the rest of us

    In my sunglasses don't mind the blinding light
    Yeah it's getting dark bro, but I've always loved the night

    But there are hundreds of ways
    To get through the day
    There are hundreds of ways
    To get through the day
    There are hundreds of ways
    To get through the day
    There are hundreds of ways
    To get through the day
    There are hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of ways
    To get through the day
    Just find one Writer/s: CONOR M. OBERST
