lyrics

couldn't leave well enough alone,
you were right, i'm wrong.
couldn't leave the well alone,
she called me on the phone.

it was just to let a friendly cry.
my middle aches, can you make me fly?
so many thoughts in so little time,
cos' their pain is their crime.

sell my car to the moving man -
i'm the sea and you're japan.
no great morning, no rising sun.
no gatsby in me i'm running from.

like a whisper in a lonely town,
you brush it off, but it's so loud.
that's your ticker, wishing don't give up.
this is more than can fill you up.
more than this i would ask in turn,
minds too busy to stop and learn.
slight of hand and a gentle push,
the lines of promise turn to crush.

sell my car to the moving man -
i'm the sea and you're japan.
no great morning, no rising sun.
no gatsby in me, i'm running from.

it's funny how the kids rise,
in a pool of my disguise.
they are warped outside and in.
what's my muse? it's their sin.
walking backwards face-first into my past,
as i refuse to be lied against.
i am a well dressed man in a larger house;
it's so quiet.

sell my car to the moving man -
i'm the sea and you're japan.
no great morning, no rising sun.
no gatsby in me, i'm running from.
