  • Born in the year of OxyContin
    Raised in the tall grass
    Teen millionaire having nightmares from the camera flash
    Now I'm alone on a windswept island
    Caught in the complex divorce of the seasons
    Won't take the call if it's the label or the radio
    Ah
    Ah-ah-ah

    Arm in a cast at the museum gala
    Fork in my purse to take home to my mother
    Supermodels all dancing 'round a pharaoh's tomb

    Now if you're looking for a savior, well that's not me
    You need someone to take your pain for you?
    Well, that's not me
    'Cause we are all broken and sad
    Where are the dreams that we had?
    Can't find the dreams that we had
    Ah, ah, ah
    Let's hope the sun will show us the p-path
    Let's hope the sun will show us the p-path

    I just hope the sun will show us the path
    Savior is not me
    I just hope the sun will show us the path
    Savior is not me
    I just hope the sun will show us the p-
