The blues the come and the blues they go
Don't hold your breath, they'll be coming back
Make you step outside that life you lead
Feel the blues fade to black
You watch yourself like in a dream
You're standin' still, the world is screamin' past

Sittin' in the driveway of my own house
The lights are on, nobody's home
The wife will call from the shoppin' mall
She'll have to talk to the code-a-phone
The world goes round but I don't care
No one know I'm sittin' there alone

Chorus
I'm a boy in a bubble, Peter Pan
I'm a Jack that's wild, I'm Teflon man
I work all day, come home at night
I'm not all there but it's alright
Daddy's on the roof again

Out in the highway drivin' around
Where I stop nobody knows
Now I know my way all around this town
But there's no place I really want to go
I'm a butterfly with no place to land
No place to fall that I can stand alone

Repeat chorus and first verse
