Never Ever Land
Never Ever Land

Air conditioner here, television over there
Down the road is an ocean of groceries
I feel fine here in my easy chair
No sign of any deadly disease

Maybe I should be satisfied
Try being an average guy
Two point one kids and a big satellite dish

All my life I been a desperate man
Never did figure out what I wanted to be
When and if I grow up
I got no five or ten year plan
Just a time bomb tickin inside me

Can’t believe I made it this far
Every evening, I wish upon a star,
“make me sane, Lord make me “me” again

how do people ever settle down
not feel a shadow of a doubt
is this all there is, or is there
something I should know? Don’t tell me, I’ll

stay dumb never get smarter
havin fun is a whole lot harder
when you know too much
and God, I know too much
so maybe I’ll
get high and never get sober
then my troubles will be over
sounds like a plan
stay in Never Ever Land oh yeah man.

when I was a kid I had unlimited time
blew it all on candy and TV
now I don’t get one minute that’s mine
always someplace else that I got to be

down deep I got a lotta love
try to keep it always covered up
play it cool. Don’t be a fool and show it

down deep, I hate to be alone
but you can’t put your hand on the phone
‘when the grass grows high on a hillside
where your body lies, and if I just had

one chance, one more moment. I’d
make it last. I keep on hoping I could get that chance
but we all get that chance and blow it
yeah, we get high and never get sober
thinkin’ “my trouble will be over”
that sounds like a plan
to stay in Never Ever Land
