lyrics

Look at the lonely elder statesman
Muddling up the window view
Screaming into the mirror wastebin
Nobody wants to be you

Nobody wants to be you
Nobody wants to be you
When you turn on your own heart and run it through

Never a moment domineering
Under a thumb and overdue
Only attentive when he’s hearing
Nobody wants to be you

[Chorus]

Everything that is right
Never is right away
Forcing makeshift alignments of stars throughout the day

Always the great armchair detective
Stuck on the why and how and who
Conjures a theory quite defective
Nobody wants to be you

[Chorus]
