The Best and the Borrow Lyrics

(Sirens Album - 2001)

I want a National Geographic 
I want to see the world 
I'm just a mess of old photographs and videos 
And all of the best friends in life that I've met 
We're just actors from movies and roles from books I've read 
Feeling dead like history 
Pages of bad magazines 
I don't want to see the world in black and white 
Feeling dead, I'm history 
Dreaming's got the best of me 
I don't want to see the world in black and white 

I want to be a successful man 
I want to dent this world 
I'll stop off to give autographs and cameos 
And all of the places in life that I've seen 
Are vacations I stole from the drive-in silver screen 

Feeling dead like history 
Opportunity, remember me? 
I don't want to see the world in black and white 
Feeling dead, I'm history 
Experience never got to me 
And I don't want to see the world in black and white 
Oh, white 

So long 
Help me 'cause I don't belong 
So long 
I want to come along 

I want the shadow of Peter Pan 
I want to own this world 
I want to never wake up from my dreams 
'Cause all of my life that I've made sweet has soured 
I've seen my own death on the prime time hour 

Feeling dead like history 
Riddle me with tragedy 
I don't want to see the world in black and white 
Feeling dead, I'm history 
Overthrow me, catastrophe 
I don't want to see the world in black and white Alright 

So long 
Help me 'cause I don't belong 
So long 
Everything real always feels so wrong 
So long 
I don't want to borrow my best anymore 
So long 

Now I'm swinging to the motions of 
(So long) 
What once was where everything seemed possible 
(So long) 
'Cause in dreams I never had to push and shove 
(So long) 
And now I'm swinging to the motions of 
(So long) 
I don't want to sing this song anymore on my own 
(So long) 
'Cause everybody's out there livin' the life that 
I thought I owned 
(So long) 
And now I'm waiting to find out now what I thought, I thought I was 
(So long) 
And now I'm swinging to the motions of 
(So long) 
Love, love, love, love, love
