lyrics

Cover me - with your raincoat
Protect me from the stars that are gonna fall
You say you love me - I suppose
It's only fair that you're warned

From the day I was born
I've been holding on to a rope that's torn
Building all my castles in the quicksand
And fighting off a bullet with a rubber band
All my mistakes are kept on file
At the local bureau of denial
Put on display on the 17th floor
For the brave and the utterly bored

You tell me - You're not frightened
I might believe you for a day
Then you'll wonder how this happened
Why did I turn out this way

From the time I was 15
I've been hypnotized by a headlight beam
Building all my castles in the quicksand
And fighting off a bullet with a rubber band
All of my failures are carefully set
Up at the local gallery of regret
Something to cherish and be freely ignored
By the brave and the utterly bored

Surprise me - With an answer
To the question of your sanity
Insulate me - With your trenchcoat
I don't know how this can be

From the night I turned 25
I've been the luckiest asshole alive
Building all those castles in the quicksand
And fighting off a bullet with a rubber band
All of my dreams are featured every day
At the local cinema matinee
With showings at 12 o'clock, 2:30 and four
For the brave and the utterly bored

Cover me - with your raincoat. Protect me from the stars that are gonna fall
