lyrics

They’re keeping track of me
I guarantee it
I want to be alone
With the fireflies on the west coast
Sending smoke signals back home
And the radios up in orbit somewhere
Keep me feeling stoned
I’m not gonna lie
I can’t explain why
I just know, I just know, I just know

Feels good to
See through it all
Their leaden veils and their brazen tales
But the truth leaks through the cracks in their walls

They’re keeping track of things
So we don’t have to
And if you come back around here
I’m going to move your made-up mind somehow so
Bring a hungry heart with your dusty doubt

They’re keeping track of me
I guarantee it
Though I don’t really mind anymore
I see the ways of the world now
And it seems I was wrong before
Thank God I figured it out

The firebugs and the satellite drugs
Protect me from the spreading wars
I’m not gonna lie
I’ve changed my mind
As long as they keep me safe I’m on board
As long as they keep me safe I’m on board

Feels good to
Pierce through the pall
Their leaden veils and their brazen tales
‘Til the truth leaks out and I drink it all

They’re keeping track of me
I guarantee it
