Bush – Altered States lyrics

Living in a cage washing in a bird bath
Sinking in a fishbowl on a broken farm
I try to never lie i really do
I wonder if my friends will get me through
Conscious of the way as best we can
17 ways to kill a man
States we've been through
Killing nostalgia for future swims
Trash all your bridges
Kill the rock and roll thing
I want to move on with no complaints
Building our walls with yesterday
Might as well shine before you slide
Might as well live before you die
States we've been through
Talk about states we've been through
Talk about states, states
Talking about
A whole lot of emptiness
Living in a state of constant changing
A river of flux for our tasting
I try to never lie i really do
I wonder if my friends will get me through
It always seems to rain when you leave
I try to stem the flow as we bleed
States we've been through
Talk about states, states
Talk about states, states
