lyrics

Like the way she always got me to move the couch
She couldn't make the leap she couldn't think it out
It wasn't gonna fit there wasn't any doubt.

Now we're settled up like strangers on a dead-end street
I turned my back on her she took a shot at me
I guess she's happiest living in that misery

I didn't mean to mess with the good things I got
Sometimes the pedal sticks and the gears get locked
And I go farther and faster than I ever thought I could.

So I swore them off but the telephone rings
She's got a pretty smile
She's got everything
She says the water's fine but I can't jump in

I didn't mean to piss on the roses I got
Sometimes the body sticks and the brain gets locked
And I go farther and faster than I ever thought I could.

It's not a question of an act I'm playing at
It's not some convoluted risk-aversion tact
You got the means you've got to break the chains
Between all their fictions and all your dreams
All their systems and all you need
There going to creep into your..
There going to tell you what your life has got to mean

So I turn my back on that world of doubt
And I get my strength from the inside out
Sometimes a whisper is louder than a shout

I didn't mean to sniff at the poses I got
Can't stand that Hollywood shit and that DJ talkSometimes them hinges stick and those doors get locked
And I go farther and faster than I ever thought I could.
Yeah I go farther and faster than I ever thought I could.
