Everclear Lyrics


I am still living with your ghost
Lonely and dreaming of the west coast
I don't want to be your downtime
I don't want to be your stupid game

With my big black boots and an old suitcase
I do believe I'll find myself a new place
I don't want to be the bad guy
I don't want do your sleepwalk dance anymore
I just want to see some palm trees
I will try and shake away this disease

We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
Watch the world die

We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
Watch the world die

I am still dreaming of you face
Hungry and hollow for all the things you took away
I don't want to be your good time
I don't want to be your fall-back crutch anymore

I'll walk right out into a brand new day
Insane and rising in my own weird way
I don't want to be the bad guy
I don't want to do your sleepwalk dance anymore

I just want to feel some sunshine
I just want to find some place to be alone

We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
Watch the world die

We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
Watch the world die

We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
Watch the world die

We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
Watch the world die

Yeah watch the world die
Yeah watch the world die
Yeah watch the world die
Yeah watch the world die

@Jason Summer I can't follow a herd of sheep. I can't play the game. The rat race. I can't be suppressed and mentally/physically dismantled by social conditioning. Sure death is inevitable. However I'd rather eat organic. Healthy. Drink water that isn't poisoned. Live with the land and moderate my technological usage.

I'd rather be alive, and prepared. We have constitutional rights.

Its not the evil tyrannical elites of the world who are at fault. They're going to try their best at a new world order regime whether we like it or not.

The people who are at fault are those who sit around and don't do anything.
Even if "one person can't make a difference".
My words may help 3 people.
Then they help others and so on and so forth, and maybe one message of mine helped so many people.

Maybe its a petition.
Or a protest that actually goes somewhere.
An ecosystem revolved group to help the planet.
Anything at all.

We all have the ability to help the collapse one way or another. Whether you deny it or not. We can all make a difference.

We say we don't care cause were lazy and not willing to put forth the initiative to actually do something with our " waste" of a life.

I hope this helped you awaken from the illusion you're living

I am still livin' with your ghost
Lonely and dreamin' of the west coast
I don't wanna be your downtime
I don't wanna be your stupid game
With my big black boots and an old suitcase
I do believe I'll find myself a new place
I don't wanna be the bad guy
I don't wanna do your sleepwalk dance anymore
I just wanna see some palm trees
I will try and shake away this disease
We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
Watch the world die
We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
Watch the world die
I am still dreamin' of your face
Hungry and hollow for all the things you took away
I don't wanna be your good time
I don't wanna be your fallback crutch anymore
Walk right out into a brand new day
Insane and risin' in my own weird way
I don't wanna be the bad guy
I don't wanna do your sleepwalk dance anymore
I just wanna feel some sunshine
I just wanna find some place to be alone
Yeah watch the world die

This song will forever signify the beginning of my freedom and independence. It was 1995, I was 17 years old and it was my senior year of highschool, and I had just gotten my first vehicle. It was a 1986 ford ranger that I bought for $500 (Lil' Blue). I was cruising around with the windows "rolled" down and the wind blowing through my hair. This song was blaring on the radio and everything was right with the world it seemed. I'm 39 now and this song just brings me right back to that day every single time I hear it. I drove that truck for about 1-1/2 years until I was broadsided and it got totaled. I can still feel the scar inside my mouth right now (no seatbelt, wore them everyday since then). The junk yard bought it from me for $400. Years later I went back to that junk yard to get parts for my explorer, and it was still there. I sat in the driver's seat, looked down at the gear shift that I broke with my thigh. I then felt the dashboard with my hand where my face had gotten slammed into it and broke it. I looked on the floorboard and found an old Zippo lighter I had bought in New Orleans years before, it still worked. I sat and reminisced for a bit thinking of how lucky I was. My injuries were very minor. I got the parts I had initially came for, threw them in the back of my explorer and got in the drivers seat to leave and started it up. And don't you know this song started playing on the radio from the beginning. It's like Lil' Blue was saying one last goodbye. I sat there and listened for bit before taking off, I almost cried. I turned the volume up, pushed the button to put the power windows down, and cruised down the road reminiscing once more as the wind blew through my hair. Memories trapped in music.
