The Shins It's Only Life Lyrics

Dyed in the wool, you've been

cornered by unnatural desire.

You want to hop along

with the giddy throng

through life.

But how'd you learn to steer

when you're grinding all your gears?

You've been talking for hours.

You said time will wash every tower

to the sea.

Now you've got this

worry in your heart.

Well, I guess it's only life,

it's only natural.

We all spend a little while

going down the rabbit hole.

The things they taught you.

They're lining up to haunt you.

They've your back against the wall.

Call you on the telephone.

Wont' you pick up the receiver?

I've been down the very road you're walking now.

It doesn't have to be so

dark and lonesome.

It takes a while, but we can

figure this thing out

and turn it back around

You used to be such a lion,

before you got into all this

crying

in my lap.

Back on when you thought I'd

never get this far.

But did you really think I'd shut an open door?

The future's calling,

and Imma answer.

The wheels in motion.

I never drank your potion,

and I know it breaks your heart.

Open up your parachute,

something's gotta stop the freefall.

I've been down the very road you're walking now.

It doesn't have to be so

dark and lonesome.

It takes a while, but

we can figure this thing out

and turn it back around.
