There’s a scared look in your eye

There’s a big sign in front of the cage
So if you’ve been bit, it’s yourself you should blame
Mutual Admiration Society - “Sake of the World” (Mutual Admiration Society, 2004)
…I’m a person who can go pretty dark. That’s the other thing that a lot of these songs, as happy as the choruses may be, my brain tries really hard to make me destroy myself.

Glen Phillips on Toad the Wet Sprocket’s music, Whopperjaw interview

He is a lot like me, didn’t know it
He is a lot like everyone he meets
Says he has dreams, and I was laughing at him
Promised no more lies, I crossed my fingers that time

Wrapped in water
Someone holding me

I am a lot like him, and I know it
I am a lot like everyone I hate
I don’t have dreams, they take too much of my time
I promised no more lies, and crossed my fingers that time

Wrapped in water
Someone holding me
