lyrics

It's another great illusion
Love there's no substitution
It's just another marble floor
You're coming back from the war
I think I'll just let out a scream
But no one's gonna hear me
Besides I just can't relate
I just don't have what it takes
So what're you gonna do now?
Just look up at the clouds
And listen to some new music
It's gonna get you through it
I heard you're gonna run away
And go off to some other place
And go mad like Jack Nicholson
Roadblocks, closed doors, no one's listening

It's another great illusion
Life there's no substitution
Heard you wanna ask for more
Then you're runnin' out the door
Think I'll just let out a scream
But no one's gonna hear me
Besides I can't get up off the seat
Oh boy it's got it's claws in me
I heard you’re gonna runaway
Go off to some other place
And go mad like Jack Nicholson
Roadblocks, closed doors, no one's listening
What’re you gonna do now?
Just look up at the clouds
And listen to some new music
It's gonna get you through it
