lyrics

Verse 1 (Fricktion:
Oh, Mr. Dopeman, bring me a dream
Let these hard edges fade until they’re smoother than cream
‘Cause sometimes this world gets to bein’ a little too mean
Thinkin’ ‘bout it for too long could cause my skull to split a seam

But I guess I’m along for the walk, or rather the ride
It’s better to talk, but I’d rather just hide
In a world made of drum hits and syllables
I might be visible but only in the physical

I’m here with you, but my mind is driftin’
The smoke has cleared, but the fog isn’t liftin’
Shiftin’ in and out of corporeality
And now I’m mad to be victim of ashin’ casually

But I’m so glad to see you after so long a vacation
I can’t recall the last time I recalled our conversation
Resharpenin’ my senses dealin’ with this observation
It’s strange the change that came while busy coverin’ my traces


Chorus (Marshall):
I went to war to be an entertainer,
and I came home stranger.
You left at the first sign of danger,
and I became a drifter.

I was only out for a minute.

I went to war to be an entertainer,
and I came home stranger.
You left at the first sign of danger,
and I became a drifter.


Verse 2 (Fricktion):
As I get closer to home I feel farther away
Seems most the similarities couldn’t be bothered to stay
How is it in the very place where I took my shape
Nowadays feel like a supermodel at a buffet

Hey, make no mistake it’s all still love,
Even if I’ve been rebuildin’ from the heels up
The love is there, but I feel that I’m in trouble when
I’m starin’ at the stove lookin’ for any sign of bubblin’


Chorus (Marshall):
I went to war to be an entertainer,
and I came home stranger.
You left at the first sign of danger,
and I became a drifter.
