lyrics

I don’t know

I don’t know what I am am doing
said everyone you’ll ever meet
and though often thought a shoe-in
my pride will ruin my mystique

See I was going to be a genius
of this I’m sure I could of been
But I took comfort in my weakness
So I could be as deep as skin

As Deep as
Tide pools by the sea side
Discreet as
Students told to be quiet
I think I’ll lose my use in due time
but before the tulips line the street signs
I wanna prove to you I’m more than Reveries
More than a cliche verse
wrapped in rhymes from nurseries

Will I die beneath this oak tree
(Where will I die)
Or will I fly beyond the sun
(Where could I fly)
Could I find the life i’m quoting
in just one night of smoking gun

Could a barber make me cooler
or would I have to Change my clothes
I’ll just pretend that I’m too guarded
When I say everyone and no-one knows

I’m as Deep as
Tide pools by the sea side
Discreet as
Students told to be quiet
I think I’ll lose my use in due time
but before the tulips line the street signs
I wanna prove to you I’m more than Reveries
More than a cliche verse
wrapped in rhymes from nurseries

Say goodbye to who you were
before you were who you are
Now you feel nostalgic
for the towel you’ve thrown in
though you’re moaning

Say hello to who you’ll be
the kind of man that no one sees
upon the road you’re on
cause all you do is all you’ll ever do

Cause no one know
(no no one knows)
you don’t know
(no you don’t know)
They don’t know
(hell they don’t know)
They don’t fucking know
(fuck man they don’t know)
