lyrics

well there's a place across the bay
where you can find me
looking for someone to show me where to find the bathroom

and if you do decide to stay
well i recommend the place that makes you pancakes
because everything's in english

and you can't quite get a feel
for whether anything is real
but if you wave your arms around enough
someone will show you how to get back home

well there's a place to make a name
where no one's heard it
can't hide what you are inside
but it never hurts to try

and in the space among the ones
who found a home
soak up the stares of those who just wish you'd
leave them alone

i'm waiting
for someone to show me
what's so great about a different game
in the middle of somebody's party
the world is different, but you're still the same

well there's a place you have to try
it's so amazing
built for us but we're too dumb to know
and that's the whole idea

and if your life feels like a lie
it'll pass and you can ask that
girl to be your family

because friends and neighbors change
but your identity's the same
and if you wave your arms around enough
someone will show you how to get back home
