Eternal Questions

You had an invite from the sun
You thought your new life had begun
But the wrong words were coming out of your mouth
You tried to tell us that a home is just a house
And you prefer it in a hospital bed
With the tears coming down
‘Cause you’re better off dead

You took yourself out of the game
Because it always ends the same
And they can see that your condition is cracked
They can tell your disposition is black
And you prefer it in a hospital bed
With the tears coming down
‘Cause you’re better off dead

And you wonder where you’ll sleep tonight
You wonder when you’ll get it right
But who are you, where have you been, where are you going
Are eternal questions not worth knowing

Sometimes you feel a bit remote
And you just can’t play it note for note
And you’re tired of being just bad news
And you’re tired of the same abuse
The same mistakes again and again
With the tears coming down
‘Cause you know how it ends

And you wonder when you’ll be okay
You wonder how you got this way
But who are you, where have you been, where are you going
Are eternal questions not worth knowing
‘Cause you won’t be around
‘Cause you won’t be around
