lyrics

Hopes In My Pocket

I got hopes in my pocket
I got worlds in my head
I got some dreams in my suitcase
and something else in my bed
I got a shortage of reason
I can't tell you why
if I need something to believe in
I'll take the devil's side, I'll take the devil's side, I'll take the devil's side

CHORUS

Oh no, don’t tell me something I already know

I got a thing for disaster
seems to follow me around
got a black dog for a house mate
well I never wanted to be found
I must have been out there walking
in some sheet metal rain
poor little mutt he was howling
I thought it would ease my pain, thought it would ease my pain, thought it would ease my pain...

Oh no, don’t tell me something I already know
no, don’t tell me something I already know

I got more than I asked for
but I got less than I need
I got an abundance of cravings
They're going to feed my greed
it get's me up in the morning
this feeling of malcontent
but everything ends with a question
when nothing is heaven sent

Oh no, don’t tell me something I already know
no, don’t tell me something I already know



I used to work with the Robots
and they were beautiful
still ticking at 5 in the morning
with the sand room full
I would have been smoking those Marlboros
and drinking cranberry juice
I wonder what happened to Jaynee?
the ketamine set her loose...

I could have been somebody's brainchild
I could have been nobody's fool
and many's the time I've been attracted
to the wrong damn school
the school of hopeless causes
the school of follow me down
to the bottom of a mindfield
I'll wear the dunces crown

Oh no, don’t tell me something I already know
no, don’t tell me something I already know
Oh no, don’t tell me something I already know
don’t tell me something I already know
