Go with the Flow

In a room, in a room, it didn't look like this

it had much more lower ceilings and it was delicately lit

I couldn't shake an old girlfriend on my mind

‘cause I was dancing to our old song with a new one

 

And there's no room, no room for her inside my head

we haven't spoke for 8 years I still feel her fingerprints

cause she: laid back, and I: a little wound…

she'd spout her little maxims that she had to calm me down, she'd say:

 

Go with the flow, with the flow, with the path

you hope for the best, you take what you have

and I have a paddle (and a bad idea up the wrong way)

 

and I heard, I heard, I heard she's married now

there's no word for the emotion that I felt when I found out

it was fiery, but casual like words put in my mouth

an indifference to some news that would have killed my former self

 

but no, not now, and I hate how that makes me feel

it undercuts the present like my passions aren't as real

‘cause time will revise both the perfect and the broken

so I have to write a song to keep a snapshot of the moment

 

Go with the flow, with the flow, with the path

you hope for the best, you take what you have

and I have a paddle (and a bad idea up the wrong way)

 

Go with the flow, with the flow, with the path

you hope for the best, you take what you have

and I have a paddle (and a bad idea up the wrong way)

 

And I chose, I chose self-medicating woes

not separating causes from the subsequent results

and I know, I know there's better antidotes

than choking on the fits and tantrums I would always throw

and I hope, I hope that I will always grow

but I'm'a cut the tongue out of the next one who says "Go with the Flow"

 

Go with the flow, with the flow, with the path

you hope for the best, you take what you have

and I have a paddle (and a bad idea up the wrong way)

 

Go with the flow, with the flow, with the path

you hope for the best, you take what you have

and I have a paddle (and a bad idea up the wrong way)

 

In a room, in a room it looked a lot like this

I told a bunch of strangers stuff I really shouldn't admit…
