My Misery And Me

My Misery And Me

downtown as i’m passing the bell tower
it’s five o’clock shadow beneath my feet
in a daydream of nothing that matters
to anyone out here on this crowded street
just my misery and me

so may this new moon
bring hope to you soon
in this poisonous life

wearing cheap smiles
and hoping it’s worthwhile
it’s breaking your heart
selling handshakes
to good for nothing fakes
it’s breaking my heart
and pulling apart
my misery and me

it’s an almost totally perfect 
total eclipse as she passes the sun
in Sinatra’s pale blue afterworld
where i wear a crown of rusted old nails
just my misery and me

so may this locked door
bare the miracle cure
you’re always searching for

wearing cheap smiles
and hoping it’s worthwhile
it’s breaking your heart
selling handshakes
to good for nothing fakes
it’s breaking my heart
and pulling apart
my misery and me

won’t you join me on judgement day
take your smile and take it away
all together on judgement day
take my smile and take it away
we are gigantic on judgement day
so go find another way
go find another way
