lyrics

The world’s not an argument
The world’s not a hair salon
You’re not allowed to bring your dog
Even if you’re blind

The world’s not an argument
The world’s not a tennis match
Gray hairs in your mustache
You shave one at a time

And I’d like to say the world
Is a rowboat full of apples
Drifting toward some island
That doesn’t have a shore

And I’d like to say the world
Is under the lid of a Snapple
A quip wrote up by copywriters
On the umpteenth million floor

But the world is the world
And I’m sleeping near the door
The world is the world
And I’m sleeping near the door

The world’s not an argument
The world’s not a county fair
Pillow stuffed with horse’s hair
That the store will not take back

The world’s not an argument
The world’s not a bowling league
The world’s not a guy named Steve
At the pool swimming laps

And I’d like to say the world
Is a joke about a ghost
Delivered by your murderer
Who’s funnier than most

And I’d like to say the world
Is a coupon for some cheese
A kind that no one’s ever heard of
And snow chokes all the trees

But the world is the world
And I want better dreams

The world is the world
And I want better dreams
