Tombstone

by Duncan Jones

It’s the same old game that I haven’t yet named
But it really doesn’t matter ‘cause it’s all the same
Everybody’s got a plan, everybody’s got advice
So I sit, and I listen, and I think, “that’s nice”
I don’t know what’s right, but I think I know wrong
And those times I can’t decide I just write another song
Then I go through the motions, then it’s back to the gym
‘Cause if I can’t get money then I’m gonna get big

First place is kinda hard kinda just like last
But you know I can’t help it I’m just so damn fast
Holliday says, “Not me, I’m in my prime”
And once again I remember “there’s no normal life”
And then I know I can’t go yet, my show ain’t shown
No, they still got nothin’ to write on my tombstone

It’s lonely at the top, yes that’s just the curse
If you wanna see the race then you can’t come in first
Careful, fame is a spice, too much just sucks
So I wish upon you ease and so many good lucks
Though I’m scared of the dark I come alive in the night
Though I’m scared of gettin’ hurt I come alive when I fight
Oh well, here comes the trend, my friend I can’t fight it
So pop goes goes the collar, might as well look like it

First place is kinda hard kinda just like last
But you know I can’t help it I’m just so damn fast
Holliday says, “Not me, I’m in my prime”
And once again I remember “there’s no normal life”
And then I know I can’t go yet, my show ain’t shown
No, they still got nothin’ to write on my tombstone

Nothin’ humbles quite like the signs of age
Nothin’ takes away the magic of the beast like a cage
A lone wolf’s always home, guess he’s smarter than the test
And success is great but doesn’t mean you’re the best
So when I get to think I’m gettin’ better since birth
I remind me and myself that dinosaurs ruled the Earth
Good things in time, no one’s ever undone it
But that ain’t my style I’d rather try to out run it

First place is kinda hard kinda just like last
But you know I can’t help it I’m just so damn fast
Holliday says, “Not me, I’m in my prime”
And once again I remember “there’s no normal life”
And then I know I can’t go yet, my show ain’t shown
No, they still got nothin’ to write on my tombstone

First place is kinda hard kinda just like last
But you know I can’t help it I’m just so damn fast
Holliday says, “Not me, I’m in my prime”
And once again I remember “there’s no normal life”
And then I know I can’t go yet, my show ain’t shown
No, they still got nothin’ to write on my tombstone
