How are you going to pass the time of day In your beautiful empty shell, When you've shaken the hands of so many sinceroes You feel like a fake yourself.
How do you choose between you and me When we both feed on being somebody else.
So you suck on the juice of youth and use any chemical you can get You get deeper in debt every step you take on your ladder of lifelessness. Bye bye to the boring times, Hello to my friend, how you been being somebody else?
Now the troops in your head won't obey what you say And the mutiny seems to spread. And all you can hear is a voice in your ear and it's telling you that you're dead.
The sun sets in a coffee cup, the moon throws up The flood flows over the house, The books start jumping from the shelf And the clothes horse races itself, Now we're all so busy being somebody else.
