lyrics

it could take up your time like marijuana
it could settle your fears and I'm scared that I'm gonna
say a piece of my brain I know I ought to just keep to myself, baby
I don't want to waste time making money
just to die in my sleep from old age, with nobody
sick of walking behind the milk and honey
I'm just trying to find the right route to keep walking
do I want to wash you out of my mouth
or do I want to be washed out
you can model your life on television
you can live for a lie all the while you're peddling 'em
you can shell out your heart to make a living by laying it all on the line, mama
I don't want to sound sad when I'm heaving
just to find the right tie to the hope I keep weaving
I don't want to sound too disbelieving by leaving you that as a sign
just to walk on
I don't want to wash you out of my mouth
and I don't want to be washed out
it could take up your time like heavy breathing
when you lie on your back, in the dark, hearing me leaving
you could tell me to stay instead of freezing by keeping it all to yourself, baby
I don't want to waste time when I'm dreaming
of being the one that makes your sleep-scheme uneven
when you're through making minds go careening I'm just hoping you'll want to hold hands
and keep walking
I don't want to wash you out of my mouth
and I don't want to be washed out
you could take up your time like marijuana
you could settle your fears and I'm scared that I'm gonna
say a piece of my brain I know I ought to just keep to myself, baby
I don't want to waste time making money
just to die in my sleep from old age, with nobody
sick of walking behind the milk and honey
I'm just trying to find the right route
