Shut Up

Just keep getting it wrong that’s all
Living out a dream a wolverine on heat
You laughed because you thought you ought to
And I did because it was expected of me

Good looking girls in this place
Lusting after all of them at once
Now I know how a wildebeeste feels
Surrounded by ghosts of love

I am here to stay
No one tears me away
So you just
Shut up

Almost felt human for a while
Bad-mouthing everybody I could think of
Maybe I was too sure about us
So sweet so witty nobody’s fool

Wasn’t heavy wasn’t pawing you
A madman in this world
If there is a God it doesn’t give a damn
Surrounded by broken dreams

I am here to stay
No one tears me away
So you just
Shut up

I know this world belongs to you
Life always kicks me when I’m down
Just wait to see what will happen
Cause otherwise it could be worse

Makes it easier to live with myself
Adventures really are hiding
Who am I trying to kid
Not smart enough to figure it out
I am here to stay
No one tears me away
So you just
Shut up
