JIM'S BIG EGO: unpop for the unpopulous!

playeverything must go

from free*

you and I saw our reflections
when we knew we'd be missing our connection
on the way to our vacation
when time just wasn't on our side

because we're all gonna die
and we don't know when
so what(re) we gonna do until then?
yeah, we're all gonna die
and we don't know when
so what(re) we gonna do until then?

I'm gonna get real drunk
I'm gonna stay up late
I'm gonna stay at home by myself
and master baking cake
I'm gonna be a freak
I'm gonna blow my mind
I'm gonna always say goodbye
like it's the last time
I'm gonna ride ride ride
I'm gonna get real free
I'm gonna be so famous
everyone will love me
I'm gonna fill my life
with leisure and fun
I'm gonna hide in the woods
with my dog and my gun

but you and I are reflections
in the wind swept lakes of perception
neither soulful nor soul-less
and time was never on our side

'cause we're all gonna die
and we don't know when
so what're we gonna do until then?
yeah, we're all gonna die
and we don't know when
so what're we gonna do until then?

closeout sale
one last show
guaranteed
everything must go
could be now
never know
wrap it up
everything must go

you and I saw our reflections
flying over lakes of perception
that's why we thought that we were clouds
when we've always only been the sky
