I see the starlight through the clouds
Why won't anybody listen to me?
Don't make me say it again out loud
Big star, I do and don't worry, baby
Bipolar pride, swim in the tide
Keep your dead head above, and your chin up
You're gonna have a pretty hard time
Without drugs, without love

Total submission
I've seen a vision
Everyone's screamin'
I've been daydreamin'
Sorry I'm fishin'
Without permission
Tell her I miss her
In a serpentine prison

Don't try to connect the dots anymore
Let 'em go, they're gonna do it on their own
Tell me that I'm not in this alone
And, man, I'm so sorry, I don't know why I'm slow
I feel like an impersonation of you
Or am I doin' another version of you doin' me?
Nobody's ever really thinkin' about us
Half as much as we want 'em to be

Total frustration
Deterioration
Nationalism
Another moon mission
Total submission
I've seen a vision
Call electrician
Serpentine prison
Whatever it is
I try not to listen
Cold cynicism
And blind nihilism
I need a vacation
From intoxication
Tell her I miss her
In a serpentine prison

I've been pickin' my kid up from school
Smellin' like Girl Scout Cookies and drool
I still crawl up to you every night
Do not forgive me, I'm a reptile
You say I'm a lot, I'm hard to take
I think you're just drinkin' the water
I walk into walls and I lay awake
I don't wanna give it to my daughter

Total submission
I've seen a vision
Everyone's screamin'
I've been daydreamin'
Sorry I'm fishin'
Without permission
Tell her I miss her
In a serpentine prison
Total frustration
Deterioration
Nationalism
Another moon mission
Total submission
I've seen a vision
Call electrician
Serpentine prison

Whatever it is
I try not to listen
Cold cynicism
And blind nihilism
I need a vacation
From intoxication
Tell her I miss her
In a serpentine prison
Total submission
I've seen a vision
Everyone's screamin'
I've been daydreamin'
Sorry I'm fishin'
Without permission
Tell her I miss her
In a serpentine prison
