shrug – only god in town lyrics


burned out at 27
punched a ticket for rock’n’roll heaven
the first time in my life i went shopping for a different one
growing old sophisticated
into the thing that you and i hated
junkie chic may be a dead end street but it’s a glamorous one

maybe you would rather use your head
a little more bored a little less dead
umbrella when the sky falls down
you’re not the only god in town

saw a chance and tried to take it
went to h-ll so i thought i’d try to fake it
the first time in my life i knew the meaning of a better one
you were young and full of glory
you skipped ahead until you skipped the whole story
drunk and dazed may be a painful phase but it’s a common one

hit the wall around 30
found a way to get my fingernails dirty
the first time in my life i’m feeling lucky just to have one
saw your face for just a minute
a psychodrama with your name featured in it
ambition’s such an easy drug-it conquers
