lyrics

it says “you are here” - where else would you be?
maybe it’s referring to the fact that you are free

got a little load - everybody does
carrying the carcass of the person that he was

wear it on your back like a turtle shell
wear it on your feet and you can
stomp around like hell

sing a little song, tell a little joke
why bother dreaming
if you’re scared of getting woke?

hey, be water, be an adapter, or fall with one hit
vengeance on your psychotic captor
or wallow in the pit
work together, t-rex the raptor, triceratops shit
are you starving for adventure now
or are you full of it?

too young to be old, too old to be too young
to hold on to what we’re told
misery loves company
and company’s a ribbon that’s unrolled
nothing left to do but dig for gold

is it the strangest era because it’s not what it was?
is it the strangest era because we’re still in love?
is it the strangest era because they held the applause?
is it the strangest era because all of the above?

well this is what we call a disaster
but isn’t it nice?
eat your worries, put them to pasture
and swallow some advice
fight the monster, become the master
‘cause fire melts ice
is it purge-a-tory that we’re in
or is it fair-a-dise?

too young to be old, too old to be too young
to hold on to what we’re told
misery loves company
and company’s a ribbon that’s unrolled
nothing left to do but dig for gold

is it the strangest era because it’s not what it was?
is it the strangest era because we’re still in love?
is it the strangest era because they held the applause?
is it the strangest era because all of the above?
