Lyrics

a sign that reads 'let's fix what's broke'
how about that line of thought's a cruel joke
why don't we both just line our coats
with all we cherish most and haggle
cause if you're always looking for the fix
you'll never see the current trips
colors of the horses and saddles
addled with the constant chore of getting better

but I can't find it
no I can't find it
what I should to be good

Summer found a magic trick
where the same thing that fixes makes you sick
but ginger ale and a saltine
isn't quite the kind that Summer means
sick of the nothing that you do, sick of staring at the tube
at marathons of food and dancing stars
I wish we had one last waltz to heal our hungry hearts

but I can't find it
no I can't find it
what I should to be

it's hard to heal when you can't really feel what's wrong
and feeling good doesn't make for feel-good songs
but Summer sang a sad one and it felt good singing along
Summer sang a sad one but it felt good to sing along
