COLD BEER AND REMOTE CONTROL
Indigo Girls


all of my days have been misspent

stuffing out the sofa and the antenna's bent

inside my heart's bustin' out at the seams

i work for the impossible american dream


i got a job at the grocery store

a few bucks an hour and not much more

the world comes in just to take things away

they eat it all up and then they sleep into day


i try not to care i would lose my mind

running 'round the same thing time after time

only two things bound to soothe my soul

cold beer and remote control


now once upon a time i was nobody's fool

(once upon a fool)

two jobs and showing up for school

i guess it comes apart so little by little

you don't know your there till your stuck in the middle

i try not to care i would lose my mind

running 'round the same thing time after time

and only two things bound to soothe my soul

cold beer and remote control


sit down

(sit down sit down)

the room is dark

(the room is dark)

the blurry graffiti on the benches

across at the public park

the plastic's black and buttoned

(the plastic's black)

the haze is blue

(the haze is blue)

and all i want is nothing to do



'cause it's a long walk to the bus stop

it's a long wait for the turning clock

it's a two-tired car sitting up on the blocks

and things i put aside like that pile of rocks


i try not to care i would lose my mind

running 'round the same thing time after time

and only two things bound to soothe my soul

cold beer and remote control


yes i try not to care i would lose my mind

(all of my days have been misspent)

running round the same thing time after time

(stuffing out the sofa and the antennas bent)

and only two things bound to soothe my soul

(inside my hearts busting out at the seams)

cold beer and remote control

(i work for the impossible american dream)

yeah


cold beer and remote control
