lyrics

Oh how the world turns
You just can’t be lazy
I’m caught in a daydream
Just doing my job

And all of the ladies
With all of their babies
They order their lattes
With two extra shots

Yes they look so happy
They’re bubbly, laughing
Their questions are answered
While mine are not

At the end of the day
too tired to think or to breathe
I crawl back to my lover on my knees
And I find him stoned, staring at the TV
And he says “baby, just come over here
And I’ll roll us up a little treat”

And we get high, oh so high
Cuz I need time to unwind
Yes we just lay, and forget the day
As we fall asleep in a smoky haze

Then the next morning
I wake up to you snoring
Back to my routine
My means to an end
Oh, but I’m missing my body
Yes I want to be naughty
To remember to dance
Oh to remember my voice

At the end of the day
Too tired to think or to breathe
I crawl back to my lover on my knees
And he takes a hold of my vulnerability
He presses his body to mind
With that joint between his teeth

And we get high, oh so high
Cuz I need time to unwind
Yes we just lay, and forget the day
Yes we fall asleep in our smoky haze

The days have become disgustingly similar
Nothing to tell the new from the familiar
Loopy, looping, trudging through the hours
I’ve lost all sense of taste
I would not know if it had soured

I try to tell you I feel like hell
You just say “Honey, it’s all in your head”
Then you pull out your lighter, you say
“Come on, just get high girl”
Then I lay limp draped over the edge of your bed

And we get high, oh so high
I don’t feel alive
I’m just trying to hide
I feel perpetually choked
We sweat, we cum
We lie in smoke

Oh how the world turns
It’s so easy to daydream
Get lost in your cravings
Forget why you’re here
Well do I have the faith to
Just step away to
A place that is lonely
But a place that is clear
