The Nixons

The Nixons - Trampoline

rate me

Fifteen minutes later

You don't seem so famous

The arms that raised you overhead

Take you to the grave instead

With your wedding ring and your trampoline

Tried to touch the sky

But you couldn't get that high

With your silly songs

Everybody sings along

But don't know what the fuck you're saying

Five miles into stardom

You begin to see

It's really not that hard

Voices chant praising you

Where are you without your tune

With your broken glass

Another passing fad

Wanted to see how far

You could fool them

With the wrong intentions

But the best of friends

You could've been king

If you'd gotten out of bed

And you try to be patient

Why did you fake it

Could be this is nothing

Could be you've got no pot to piss in

Without a voice, without a sound

See you when you're coming down

With swollen glands

Another passing fad

Wanted to see how far

The envelope would open

With your vasoline

Everybody sings

Goodbye the savior

goodbye the king

Hope you're happy in the new world

Is the pain gone?

In the new world

Was is better to burn out

Now that you've faded away?

Why did you, why would you fade away?

I wish you, I wish you would've tried

Try to be patient

Why did you fake it

Try to be patient

Why did you fake it

Won't you, won't you try

Try
