​A Common Cold

This song is by Poor Bailey and appears on the album Pyrite & Gold (2006).

I can't sit still, I'm so excited!
I'm throwing a party and no one's invited!
You say I'm obsessed with the weather.
And you say I should know better.
(But I don't)

'Cause the sky is ever changing
And you wonder why it cries.
The leaves get sick of hanging on,
It's no wonder they die.
Still all these mysteries
Leave me wondering why.

Something needs nothing to survive.
Something needs nothing to survive.

The more you lose, the more you find.
The more you laugh, the more you cry.
If these walls could talk well,
What would they say?
They would remember everything
And they'd crumble over me.

'Cause the sky is ever changing.
The seasons pass you by.
These things take explaining,
You better not close your eyes, your eyes.
Still all these memories
Leave me wondering why.

Something needs nothing to survive.
Something needs nothing to survive.

'Cause the sky is ever changing.
The seasons pass you by.
It's so goddamn amazing,
The more you live,
The more you die in life.

You can have a handful of "Hello's"
But you only get one "Goodbye."
Nothing makes sense until you realize.
Something needs nothing to survive.

Because he who doesn't seek is free.
Because darkness doesn't speak, it screams.
And reality's only real
In dreams where I'm dying.
So lets turn out the lights
And try and get some sleep.
