At Least I'm Not Like Jonathan Carver

from Use With Headphones Late At Night (Best of 1990​-​2000) by Tadpoles



©1996 Parker / Max / N. Kramer, BMI

Aren't you tired of coming down

You want to float not be around

Aren't you tired

When you're lazy lying on some grass

Following all the dusty paths

You watch the sky slide past your face

When morning comes you've won the race

Then parachute land on the floor

You hit the ground feeling sore

Your knees buckle but you give it more

Step inside your first balloon

Blow it up and make it bloom
