"It’s Alright, I Understand"

[Verse 1]
Walk past the kids all skipping class
Their nervous smiles and too loud laughs
A cigarette gets passed around the boys
Celebrity becomes implied with their whitened teeth
Cheshire cat smiles
As all around me rushes to the noise
Of a holiday I cannot comprehend rolls slowly
As the tram tracks bend around more
Choking hazard toys
And the ocean laps dyed green under the footpath
Where the shore once stood proud
But nobody's got time for that now

[Chorus]
So I ask for directions even though I know exactly where I am
Just want someone to talk to
Someone to hold their hand against my hand
Say, "It's alright, I understand"
Say, "It's alright, I understand"

[Verse 2]
And I cannot judge and I cannot hide
My coffee teeth and brand name smile
As I'm suckered in by the blinking lights
Happy hours, pointless fights
And the taxes I can't comprehend
I don't know how much to tip
Or where the grand experiment goes
To get f*cked when it gets dark
And I'm magically made to cooperate
And the streets 'round here don't feel the same
As when I would have wanted to walk down
Every avenue arm in broken arm with you
But now my pre-sunrise respite
Makes me even less of the right guy

[Bridge]
And I'm happy here or I'm comfortable there
But I don't get to say that much
Thought it was another thing we gave up
Yeah, yeah, I thought it was another thing we'd given up

[Verse 3]
Like having friends, relationships
And any chance of stay at home happiness
Remembering dollars and cents
And knowing where the f*ck I have slept
But I'd give it all up for a shot at this
I wanna make everything, quit every bad habit that I'm in
Remember where I'm from and where I'm going
And find something in me to provide self-esteem
Stop living day to day, night to night, dream to dream
I don't get anything from anything anymore
I don't love anyone anymore
I don't love anyone anymore
I don't love anyone anymore

[Chorus]
So I ask for directions even though I know exactly where I am
Just want someone to talk to
Someone to hold their hand against my hand
Say, "It's alright, I understand"
Say, "It's alright, I understand"
