The Shins – For A Fool lyrics

[Verse 1]
Young and bright
But now just a dim light
Off in the distance
A fallen stone
Following the path, of least resistance

[Pre-chorus]
If I still fight
It's just that I'm
Afraid i'll slide under that spell again

[Chorus]
Taken for a fool
Yes I was because I was a fool
Tell me what you'd do
Lost my way when she took me to school

[Verse 2]
So many times
Caught up in my head at night
With a leash and a label
If I could learn
Anything from this then I'd be like
The fox and the fable all right

[Pre-chorus]
If I still fight
It's just that I'm
Afraid i'll slide under that spell again

[Bridge]
The way we used to carry on
Is stuck in my head like a terrible song

[Chorus]
Taken for a fool,
Yes I was and I was a fool
Following the rules
Guess I was a very honest tool

[Ending]
Taken for a fool,
Yes I was because I was a fool
