No One Changes

Mind is blown but her body's still in shock
Can't see nothing as she's staring at the kitchen clock
Feels so bland in the eye of the storm it's a bedroom day
We should switch we should pass ourselves around
Meet me at the corner tear your dream home down
It's a goddamn shit-show out here now
Something to tell you 'bout that someone told me 'bout
I know I'm weak and this weekend you'll find out
Yes, I sleep at that fucking whore's house now
But it's cinematic, cinematic fades to black
Every day is a rodeo, man
No one's gonna change, nobody ever does
No one's gonna change, no one is changing for you
No one's gonna change, nobody ever does
And I'm never gonna do what you want me to
Sitting here speaking Greek to a college blog
Every sentence is the same it's just talk, talk, talk
I am one, I admit it, of a million
Who has it out for these soapbox idiots
The click clack of your high heels you're away
Downstairs on a tic-tac stripper's break
Every dancer trying to sync to the beat
Every motherfucker in this place tells me the same shit
This whole world's got to buy you a drink, man
Got to take you to the edge and watch you throw it up
Every morning I could give a damn what you did last night
Just tell me how far to kick this can
No one's gonna change, nobody ever does
No one's gonna change, no one is changing for you
No one's gonna change, nobody ever does
And I'm never gonna do what you want me to
I don't wanna feel so jaded
Getting on a plane to work things out
When I'm alone, you're all I think about
But I'm never alone very long
They say you got to love yourself first, that's a trip
I've been hating myself since I was a little kid
I know it's sad that the game's rained out
And all the bleachers emptied out and the turnstiles spin
All the good ones in the world they keep dropping dead
Everybody's got a bullet flying at their head
I seen it coming, man, I seen it coming
I seen it coming, no
No one's gonna change, hey, and that's the truth
No one's gonna change, oh, baby not for you
No one's gonna change, hey, and that's the truth
And I'm never gonna do what you want me to

The Rockaways


Scared of everything
Everything's on blast
Never travel light
I carry the past
In an armored car
That's my skeleton
Worship one idea
Like a superfan
In a gallery
With a slanted view
There's a book signing
Dystopian haikus
As they're read out loud
Under Edison lights
Makes me scratch my head
And think of simpler times
Borrowed a car for the day
We drove it out to The Rockaways
And you went swimming
I watched you swimming
I'm made of money now
There's nothing I want
Except expensive wine
To watch the rocket launch
We'll climb up on the roof
And sit in plastic chairs
Watch it accelerate
Until it disappears
Just like your goodbye voice
Trailing off down the hall
I love you, baby
I'll be back in one hour
You'll try and smile then
Sometimes it doesn't stick
I'll help you tune it out
I'll help you reminisce
Borrowed a car for the day
Filled it up with some friends I'd made
And they went dancing
I watched them dancing
Don't feel badly
I'm barely angry
It's not too much to contain
Always knew that
It'd probably happen
We'd put these memories to shame
Borrowed a car for the day
Gassed it up for our getaway
Said you'd be waiting
I left you waiting
