Conor Oberst - Nikorette Lyrics


I?m just trying to stay a human being
Sitting in the sun eating ice cream
Texting my friend about a bad bad dream
Just trying to find someone who knows me

But I don?t got time for your cuckoo clock
And I don?t want to go to your Mason Lodge
There?s nothing more sad than a lynching mob
Full of rational men who believe in God

But nothing makes sense when the wave rolls through
Nothing makes sense when the wave comes through
Well if there?s something in me well I know it?s in you
If there?s something in me well I bet it?s in you

My neighbor dreams big because his house is small
Says all he needs now is some capital
It?s a pirate world it?s a free-for-all
They take your bright ideas and they make them dull

But everyone I see I think I?ve known before
From the opera house to the grocery store
My love for them I cannot ignore
Like a human voice in a quiet morgue

But I don?t want to wear no dead man?s suit
I don?t want to wear no dead man?s suit
I don?t want to wait until the moon gets blue
I don?t want to wait until the moon turns blue

It?s all just a fix
Just one little hit
You?ll hold it in

Sitting on a plane chewing nicorette
Paradise lost haven?t found it yet
Will you talk me down if I get upset?
Be the cool washcloth to my fevered head

Because I don?t want to dream if it won?t come true
I don?t want to dream if it don?t come true
If there?s something in me well I guess it?s in you
If there?s somewhere in me then I know it?s in you

It?s all just a fix
Just one little hit
You?re holding in
You?ll hold it in
You?re holding in
You?ll hold it in

And I don?t want to dream if it won?t come true
I don?t want to dream if it don?t come true
If there?s something in me well I guess it?s in you
If there?s somewhere in me then I know it?s in you
If it happens to me it?s going to happen to you
Whatever happens to me it?s going to happen to you
