Mudpie - Lifehouse

Nothing but a mudpie
Wrapped up inside with pretty bow
Nothing but a castle
Built on top of strong quicksand
And inside these cardboard walls & saran wrap windows
Lies a rusty pot of fools' gold
That you got with your life

Are you tired of being wrapped up on loyalty
Are you trying to make yourself act like royalty
Until the day you became his praise
As you tripped over your red carpet
You wash your hair in that luca oil
Then you wrap your head up with tin foil
and prance around in your bathroom
Pretending you're a king

Just spin me home
Sinking fast
Stir now

Well you can follow your rainbows
and I will follow the sun now
Wherever he goes
It's not too far to run
So I will follow the sun
Follow the sun

Nothing but a calendar hanging on your wall
That's 23 years old
Nothing but a for sale sign on a house
That's already sold
Trying to crew through that
Chocolate covered barbed wire
'Cause they're among the beautiful filth
Waiting for you on the other side

Just spin me home
Sinking fast
Stir now

Well you can follow your rainbows
and I will follow the sun now
Wherever he goes
It's not too far to run
So I will follow the sun
Follow the sun
Follow the sun
Follow the sun
Follow the sun

Clever lives end up rusty & forgotten
Brilliant minds end up with Alzheimer's
What I thought was so deep ended up so hollow
and what I thought had meaning
ended up so shallow

And you can follow your rainbows
and I will follow the sun now
Wherever he goes
It's not too far to run
So I will follow the sun

And you can follow your rainbows
and I will follow the sun now
Wherever he goes
It's not too far to run
So I will follow the sun
