lyrics

// wind at our backs away we go / borrowed clothes and hopeful hearts / we’re moving fast singing as we go / oh no you’re a clever one / but the last train left five years ago / and the people all scream hey get with the times kid / see all of the friends we want to see / but we keep it short and move along / we cannot stay we’ve got other places to be / oh no we’re just rolling through / with our maps and plans and souvenirs that you keep praying are gonna be worth something soon / haven’t we been here before / and you knew i could never state my claim when you’d say / good morning mr. general the world is at your feet / i’ve begun to wonder if i should if i should leave it to the proteges / oh no we’re dying in our sleep / i can barely see you standing there in the corner in my dreams / we can’t go home the bank took the house / let out a sigh and down the wine / we’ll start again when the sun comes out / oh no darling follow me / don’t know our way home anyway so toss the map / i’m where i want to be / haven’t we been here before / can’t you see i could never state my claim when you’d say / good morning mr. general the world is at your feet / i’ve begun to wonder if i should if i should leave it to the proteges / oh no we’re dying in our sleep / i can barely see you standing there in the corner in my dreams / mr general / mr general / oh no
