The Battle of Mr Shibuya - Lyrics

I said you with your fortresses lay,
In the coldness of time.
Doing nothing more,
Than watching it all pass you by.
Sure it's easier than being in any kind
of investment in life,
Find your money. Find your home,
There's nothing more to being alive.

Said I'll hide in my shallows,
It's easier than moving with the tides,
Up and down you'll be pulled,
You're a fool,
There's no freedom in rollercoaster rides.

My feet are on the ground,
I'm free to walk around.
You stay in your depths.
You're too afraid to drown in your dreams.

And it's gone, all gone, all gone
And it's gone, all gone, all gone

Ideas have no words,
and words have no ideas,
only sounds

And I said oh you poor man,
Your life is more bland than you think,
Your ideas are as clear as the water that runs through your sink.
I said your days are full of hours
And your house Is full of things
Your camera's full of pictures
But your head is only full of what you drink.

You think you are so wise
with your dephts and disguise
You're a fool
You have nothing to your name
but a single person to blame
But you,
don't you dare philosophy
I am happy with my life
You don't know where you're going
And you'll end up nowhere
Keep your truth

And it's gone, all gone, all gone
And it's gone, all gone, all gone

Ideas have no words,
And words have no ideas,
only sounds

You say that you're happy,
procrastinate until the day you die.
Give your kids your big mortgage,
I'm sure you'll live on through their lives.

Be a mortal in your fishbowl,
Hold a candle for your light.
You can live on forever.
in your freeze-dried packaged up mind.

And you are very clever with words and philosophies
You're alone
See, I'd rather join the herd
be part of a crowd than on my own
Give yourself all that time
You're much realler than I

Alone you will die
With your poetry and dignity
Good-bye

And it's gone, all gone, all gone
And it's gone, all gone, all gooonnnne

Ideas have no words,
And words have no ideas,
only sounds

Might as well join the herd,
Mixed melody, to our ears, for now.
Oh, for now.
