We Are Nowhere and It's Now

We Are Nowhere and It's Now

Bright Eyes


If you hate the taste of wine

Why do you drink it 'til you're blind?

And if you swear that there's no truth and who cares

How come you say it like you're right?

Why are you scared to dream of God

When it's salvation that you want?

You see stars that clear have been dead for years

But the idea just lives on

In our wheels that roll around

As we move over the ground

And all day it seems we've been in between

The past and future town

We are nowhere, and it's now

We are nowhere, and it's now

And like a ten minute dream in the passenger seat

While the world was flying by

I haven't been gone very long

But it feels like a lifetime

I've been sleeping so strange at night

Side effects they don't advertise

I've been sleeping so strange

With a head full of pesticide

I've got no plans and too much time

I feel too restless to unwind

I'm always lost in thought as I walk a block

To my favorite neon sign

Where the waitress looks concerned

But she never says a word

Just turns the jukebox on and we hum along

And I smile back at her

And my friend comes after work

When the features start to blur

She says these bars are filled with things that kill

By now you probably should have learned

Did you forget that yellow bird?

How could you forget your yellow bird?

She took a small silver wreath and pinned it on to me

She said, "This one will bring you love"

And I don't know if it's true

But I keep it for good luck
