Long Beach Shortbus – Better Than This lyrics

Every man needs to get a little sleep
We all need sanctuary from the trouble on the street
Working hard and making money
But I'd rather be dreaming underneath a shady tree

And it's 6:00 in the morning, I've been up all night
And I'm tossing and I'm turning and I'm fearing
Daylight
I'm so spun out, but I think I know what we could do
I'm exploding with ideas but I can't call you

Oh lord, I hear people in the trees
I'm going on a mission, unlock your ten-speed
I hear this place is hot, swarming with police
And there's a man on the corner with this camera on me

And I'd do anything to get a little rest
I think a nightmare would be better than this
I think a nightmare would be better than this

There's a house they say is haunted up the street
The last family that moved in evacuated in a week
That voodoo lady always got to me
And I'm searching for her spirit desperate for company

'Cause it's 6:00 in the morning, I've been up all night

Can't stop, the wheels are turning, fearing God's
Morning light
I'm so spun out, but I think I know what we could do

I'm exploding with ideas but I can't call you

Oh Lord, I hear people in the trees
I've got to take the world on a mission with me
I had a close brush with voyeur destiny
And then I hope that you're looking and can see right
Through me

Can't you see?

I'd do anything to get a little rest
I think a nightmare would be better than this
I think a nightmare would be better than this

Lord, can it get be better than this?
Can't keep living like this
Better than this

Oh, I feel so shallow, just like a puddle
I think a nightmare would be better than this
