lyrics

Stupid World

we wrote on the sidewalk
when no one was watching
this way to the ocean

and she took her clothes off
and waved at the traffic
but nobody noticed
it was a stupid world

ha da da da da da
ha da da da da da
ha da da da da da

our train leaves at midnight
there's light in the hallway
and bags on the curb now

where kids dress like soldiers
and bombs fill the windows
we'll marry in winter
in a stupid world

ha da da da da da
ha da da da da da
ha da da da da da

soon the trees will be green again
and the sun will be out
and the birds will return again
from the south

some suffer a blindness
of wild disappointment
despite good intentions

i showed her my scars then
she showed me her bruises
you're someone's salvation
in a stupid world

ha da da da da da
ha da da da da da
ha da da da da da
