lyrics

I don’t remember a thing about the way it used to be
It’s not that I’ve been brain-washed for years
It’s just that it doesn’t mean that much to me
Shaggy smilers been grubbing for years
They sell back-issue nudies to feed
And the pressure on me to be somebody’s saviour
Tells me I ain’t living for free

Try to smile - you’re lying
Well hey, thanks for trying
Try to smile - you’re lying
Well hey, thanks for trying

People write letters to dirty D.C.
Your letters get back-filed and burned
And if you stop trying to care about the streets
Well, nothing, nothing gets done
Though your windows get smashed and you houses get burned
If you don’t like the way your homes are built, you just run
And, all it takes is just one cold weather-freeze
To over-populate your Florida sun

Try to smile - you’re lying
Well hey, thanks for trying
Try to smile - you’re lying
Well hey, thanks for trying

And each day you close your little mind
I’m blind because I want to believe you
And, your pleasures will never come out
When you’re grown and stopped growing
I’d have known if your a cannon
And, I’d have known if you had a shot at all
You could’ve made sense of your situation
But, you put it to rest, and now you’re gone
I’m running over the same old ground
And I’m wondering if I’m up or down
And, I just want someone to save me...

Try to smile - you’re lying
Well hey, thanks for trying
Try to smile - you’re lying
Well hey, thanks for trying

And each day you close your little mind
I’m blind because I want to believe you
And, your pleasures will never come out
When you’re grown and stopped growing

But, I’m trying...
