  • I see the starlight through the clouds
    Why won't anybody listen to me?
    Don't make me say it again out loud
    Big star, I do and don't worry, baby
    Bipolar pride, swim in the tide
    Keep your dead head above, and your chin up
    You're gonna have a pretty hard time
    Without drugs, without love

    Total submission
    I've seen a vision
    Everyone's screamin'
    I've been daydreamin'
    Sorry I'm fishin'
    Without permission
    Tell her I miss her
    In a serpentine prison

    Don't try to connect the dots anymore
    Let 'em go, they're gonna do it on their own
    Tell me that I'm not in this alone
    And, man, I'm so sorry, I don't know why I'm slow
    I feel like an impersonation of you
    Or am I doin' another version of you doin' me?
    Nobody's ever really thinkin' about us
    Half as much as we want 'em to be

    Total frustration
    Deterioration
    Nationalism
    Another moon mission
    Total submission
    I've seen a vision
    Call electrician
    Serpentine prison
    Whatever it is
    I try not to listen
    Cold cynicism
    And blind nihilism
    I need a vacation
    From intoxication
    Tell her I miss her
    In a serpentine prison

    I've been pickin' my kid up from school
    Smellin' like Girl Scout Cookies and drool
    I still crawl up to you every night
    Do not forgive me, I'm a reptile
    You say I'm a lot, I'm hard to take
    I think you're just drinkin' the water
    I walk into walls and I lay awake
    I don't wanna give it to my daughter

    Total submission
    I've seen a vision
    Everyone's screamin'
    I've been daydreamin'
    Sorry I'm fishin'
    Without permission
    Tell her I miss her
    In a serpentine prison
    Total frustration
    Deterioration
    Nationalism
    Another moon mission
    Total submission
    I've seen a vision
    Call electrician
    Serpentine prison

    Whatever it is
    I try not to listen
    Cold cynicism
    And blind nihilism
    I need a vacation
    From intoxication
    Tell her I miss her
    In a serpentine prison
    Total submission
    I've seen a vision
    Everyone's screamin'
    I've been daydreamin'
    Sorry I'm fishin'
    Without permission
    Tell her I miss her
