Good Help (Is So Hard to Find)

  • You'll never have to hear the word "no"
    If you keep all your friends on the payroll
    The non-disclosure pages signed
    Your secret's safe between those lines
    The scaffolding will cheer and console you
    But remember what your mother told you
    That good help is so hard to find
    For people that are so refined

    You're trying to turn into the skid
    In this never-ending grid

    There's a long, slow fade
    To a darkened stage
    And I hear you say
    "Only a fool gives it away"
    Only a fool would give
    Only a fool gives it away

    You said you wanna stake out your claim
    High above the city from where you came
    Don't you know the air's so thin?
    It starves the brain of oxygen
    I know it's such a dangerous place
    For there are more ascensions than there is space
    Angels causing accidents
    The camera phones'll document
    But if I start to levitate
    Pull me down with all your weight

    There's a long, slow fade
    To a darkened stage
    And I hear you say
    "Only a fool gives it away"
    Only a fool would give
    Only a fool gives it away

    You're trying to turn into the skid
    In this never-ending grid
    But you should know it's not ideal
    All those hands upon the wheel

    There's a long, slow fade
    To a darkened stage
    And I hear you say
    "Only a fool gives it away"
    There's a long, slow fade
    To a darkened stage
    And I hear you say
    "Only a fool gives it away"
    Only a fool would give
    Only a fool would give
    Only a fool would give
    Only a fool gives this away Writer/s: Benjamin Gibbard
