either the winter's gotten longer
or my memory's getting worse
with your wristwatch always twisting around that endless calendar

oh andrew be my roses, and lay over the grave

oh every character I play
it was always such an awful waste
dreaming of an ocean

in a lakestate

life's parade has moved so slowly
but now it's finally at your door
and these clowns they, dance in circles, but you always expected more

because there's an ocean full of diamonds, the one around your finger's fake

and your hair is slowly turning grey
these lines fill up your porcelain face
while dreaming of an ocean

in a lakestate

now you bet on us like horses
in the prospects of the young

and the textbooks say to act your age in an age that's come and gone

you either got it or you don't
and now I guess I know my place

but I only have myself to blame
it never mattered anyway
don't dream about the ocean
don't dream about the ocean
don't dream about the ocean

in a lakestate
