pretend like we did

these settings won’t fit the bill

for the characters i’m no fan
stuck looking for photosynthesis
in a couple of tin cans

these giants want to block the sun
stealing jobs from the moon
you don’t see it but i know; i know
not long you’ll hatch from your cocoon

there’s no reason for running
we didn’t rob, cheat, or kill
but we’ll pretend like we did
just to wear out those wheels

let’s go

we could skim the lands that hide between
place some pollen memories in our cart
won’t want to see any crowded capitals
so don’t skip to your favorite part

might not be pages or plots to twist
but from cover to cover i’ll read
it’s just something that must be done
without rhythm you can’t lead

there’s no reason for running
we didn’t rob, cheat, or kill
but we’ll pretend like we did
just to wear out those wheels

let’s go

can’t explain why i want to stick around
you’re singing what’s been said & what’s wrote
my dress shoes are wet from puddles
and i don’t see anyone laying coats

it is my choice to come or let be
but there’s so many feathers on my head
it’s just a shame to see me sleep here
when i look like a stranger in my bed

there’s no reason for running
we didn’t rob, cheat, or kill
but we’ll pretend like we did
just to wear out those wheels

let’s go
