Ken Mode – Fractures In Adults Lyrics


It's never as bad as you think; but it's always the worst it's been
How many times must I fade away?
Longing for a free flowing, natural understanding
And it feels less and less likely as the time passes

On paper things are fine. They're fine. I'm fine
Where have you been, my narcissistic dream?
On paper things are fine. They're fine. I'm fine
Where have you been, my narcissistic dream?

If I stay awake – well, just long enough
If I stay awake and I care, sometimes things will just sort of end

Endless scribbles, and drafts on drafts on drafts
When I need to care, it's just not there

When people need to settle; I just cannot settle

On paper things are fine. They're fine. I'm fine
Where have you been, my narcissistic dream?
On paper things are fine. They're fine. I'm fine
Where have you been, my narcissistic dream?

Funneling toward the worst of our nature
It'll take your everything
