lyrics

there is no red pill
there is no blue pill
the princess is not in another castle
there is no princess, there is no castle
there is no right way
there is no wrong way
there is no leeway
there is just the long way

there are no shortcuts
there are no shortcuts
there are no shortcuts

there are no mushrooms
there are no fire flowers
there are no warp zones
there are no superpowers
there are no green lights
there are no express trains
there are no free rides
there are no fast lanes

there are no shortcuts
there are no shortcuts
there are no shortcuts

always seeking distraction
searching all over the place
distraction is simply a kind of inaction,
avoiding what's staring you right in the face
always seeking a way out
always trying to hide
telling the bad thoughts to get out and stay out
but they keep sneaking back inside

there is no white wine
there is no dark beer
there is no Jim Beam
there's no everclear
there's no alcohol
there's no nicotine
there's no ecstacy
there's no ketamine

there are no shortcuts, there are no shortcuts, there are no shortcuts, there are no shortcuts
there is only you
