Lyrics Print

Nothing's ever perfect
Everything is always fine
But disastrous in your book
Is Utopian in mine

I guess we're mortal enemies
And we'll fight unto the death
I can't consume the air
Until you've taken your last breath

Lead me on
Lead me on

I've spent a lot of time trying to understand how to change the world
But in all that time there's just a simple fact that I observed
My opinion matters
But to me, but to me
But to me, do you see my opinion is confirmed

Nothing's ever perfect
Everything is always fine
But disastrous in your book
Is Utopian in mine

I guess we're mortal enemies
And we'll fight unto the death
I can't consume the air
Until you've taken your last breath

Lead me on
Lead me on

I've spent a lot of time trying to undermine your words
But in all that time I've not been able to actually be heard
My opinions are all scattered
Utterly, out to sea,
But to me, do you see my opinions aren't absurd

Nothing's ever perfect
Everything is always fine
But disastrous in your book
Is Utopian in mine

I guess we're mortal enemies
And we'll fight unto the death
I can't consume the air
Until you've taken your last breath

Lead me on
Lead me on

You're the me who sees the good in me
I'm the me who has to live reality

Nothing's ever perfect
Everything is always fine
But disastrous in your book
Is Utopian in mine

Lead me on
Lead me on
