I hope you don't listen to me
I don't always say what I'm thinking
Sometimes I'll tell you
What I think you want to hear
Most times I'll just talk
To make sound

I wish I was here,
I wish I was anywhere
Broke down the door to my house
When I lost the keys
Now everything I had
Has been lost or stolen

And even my good friends
Have stopped coming around
Since I started wearing my dragon hat

I wish I was here,
I wish I was anywhere
Where I might reach out,
Where I might feel
There's a dead heart
Lying on my doorstep

I used to think
I'd pick it up and use it sometime
Now I step around,
I step around
Try not to notice
Well, I see it,
But mostly I don't care

I wish I was here,
I wish I was anywhere
Where I might reach out,
Where I might feel
But I think you know me,
It's just not that easy

I hope you don't follow me down
I don't ever look where I'm jumping
And everyone who comes along
Winds up dead or broken
But my rubber legs
Always seem to save me

I wish I was here,
I wish I was anywhere
Where I might reach out,
Where I might feel
But I think you know me,
And I just don't get better

I'd rather die than say I was wrong
I hope you don't listen to me,
I never think before speaking
