​No Key, No Plan

This song is by Okkervil River and appears on the EP Black Sheep Boy Appendix (2005) and on the album Black Sheep Boy (Definitive Edition) (2007).

When I'm hosed and they're closing in
Maybe only then
Really, I'll try to get right with myself

But I'll grope down that ladder again
'Til I'm tumbling
But really, I just want to slide
I want to crash-land

While my friend, my associate
He's a regal man
Bindles and he twists and ties
Gives the reckoning

Then it's back on the road again
With maybe thirteen grand
Moralize all you might like
I don't believe in it

(You've never earned your soul)
I know
(You've never earned your soul)
I know
(You've never earned your soul)
I know
But I'm gonna try
Oh

I'm a rich young sophisticate
I've got girls and friends
I'm doing what I really like and getting paid for it

There is no key, there's no plan
Well I discovered that
And truly I don't think you'll find a happier man

(You've never earned your soul)
I know
(You've never earned your soul)
I know
(You've never earned your soul)
I know
But I'm gonna try
Oh
I'm gonna try

You float up high and it isn't a sin
And there isn't a hell where we'll be sent
There's only now
There isn't then
So just breathe it in
