Plush – Jet Life

I still find this one of the most descriptive songs I know:

Jet Life, by Plush:

Jet Life
i’m living live like a rockstar
how i really want to go far
from here

cool cats
riding the town like they own it
that is something i will never get
oh, i will never get that

and i do believe
i do believe
no-one feels this pain
inside of me

dead tired, dead tired
im dead tired of all of this
dead tired, dead tired
im dead tired of all of this
dead tired, dead tired
dead tired of all of this

jet life, slow life
picking up the broken pieces of my life
tentative hesitant a bit
God
it all looks so positive

its a shame about the world though
lost dreams and no tomorrows
its a shame its such a stuff-up
you know it wouldn’t be
if we weren’t all so stuck up

cause we know nothing at all
if we didn’t realize that we’re so small
one shake of the earth
one spin of the sea
we’re squashed up bugs beneath God’s feet

all i am is a believer, all i am is a believer
are you a believer?
we’re all just dreamers

dead tired, dead tired
im dead tired of all of this
dead tired, dead tired
im dead tired of all of this
dead tired, dead tired
im dead tired of all of this
dead tired, dead tired
im dead tired of all of this

while the rest of the world is fighting
in a war that no-one survives in
young men are sift
before they’ve even lived
well that doesn’t seem fair to me

and daddy’s at home, he’s angry
cause he’s Son’s no longer his property
well man you had the wrong perceptions
cause he was never your possession

and women walk around
with mace in their bags
just a piece of meat
waiting to be tagged

well i can’t believe this happens in my land
i can’t believe the value of the Rand

oh jet life, everybody’s striving for a good life
and nothing’s gonna happen if you sti around and waste time
you’ve gotta move
you’ve gotta prove
you’ve gotta stay humble
or this world will surely crumble
