Peter Mulvey – A Better Way To Go lyrics

I just came from the guru's website
I'm still washing off the smell
Man, why don't he just go on tv
And tell us all, "Give up or go to hell"

I was only looking if they had something to say
Lately it has been hard to get through my day
I was looking for something I just don't know
I've been looking for a better way to go

Because there's something missing deep inside me
That's as common as the rain
I'm long on good intentions
But I've got zero tolerance for pain

And in this, I'm like everyone I find
We try, it's so hard to just be kind
And the ones we love, sometimes we hurt them so
So we're looking for a better way to go

I'm going crazy
With the sirens from the past
Am I too lazy
to lash my sorry ass to the mast?
Everyday, I lose another chunk of myself
Everyday there's more junk upon my shelf

And the biggest joke of all
Is the one that we all know
Time is the only road
Everyone knows where it goes

I don't want a destination different from the rest
I don't want to win because I tried my best
I only hope there is somebody there to know
And so please help me find a better way to go
