I’ve been a bad boy
Went and told her it was all real
The sky was falling the whole time
Now yesterday’s so far from here
Goddamn the merry men and wives
Asleep in their shiny happy homes
When all she wanted was a picture of the dream
But it’s fast times when we all end up alone

And all I got say is
That mister was right
Mommy got a gun and she took her life
Painted up a picture, evergreen
The most beautiful eyes you’d ever seen
When she cries
Oh love, I wonder what that’s like?

And everybody’s paying
To fall in love
The fairytale lie
For a couple a bucks
They’re calling on the phone
For trips to outer space
To get lost
I wonder how long that takes?

Tired leaves are screamin' in the trees
The parking lot babes are callin names, getting paid
A child smiles in an upstairs apartment
You can almost feel the sun come out
Goddamn the alley cats and stripes
Another year in a movie of this life
The stars want money, the fools want fame
Sometimes good and bad are the same

And all I got say is
That mister was right
Mommy got a gun and took her life
Painted up a picture, evergreen
The most beautiful eyes you’d ever seen
When she cries
Oh love, I wonder...

And everybody’s paying
To fall in love
The fairytale lie
For a couple a bucks
They’re calling on the phone
For trips to outer space
To get lost
I wonder how long that takes?
