genius of crack lyrics – american heartbreak

californ-i-a so it seems
life isn’t what it appears to be
people live in boxes outside my door
can’t get no relief
throw it all away
sadly beautiful and all shut down
down on their luck and down on themselves
halfway around the world, no looking back
yesterdays are just that
don’t beat yourself up
don’t take it so hard
takin’ the punches
when they’re coming for you
the bruises begin to show through
genius of crack
appears to be
living in the 21st century
babys sick of a sugar fix
can’t get no relief
throw it all away
sadly beautiful and all shut down
down on their luck and down on themselves
halfway around the world, no looking back
yesterdays are just that
don’t beat yourself up
don’t take it so hard
takin’ the punches
when they’re coming for you
the bruises begin to show through
they begin to show through
fallin’ out of love
is so easy to do
forget about me and
i’ll forget about you
bruises begin to show through
they begin to show
forget-me-nots from all the friends you lost
never think about the cost
all the saviors that you lost
comes a time in your life when you hold a dream
well i know that much is true
believe in me
and i’ll believe in you
or maybe i’ll be leaving soon
(repeat chorus)
