Lyrics (unofficial)

I am Steve McQueen in the cooler baby
Wastin' my ti-i-i-ime
Paul Newman on a chain gang
Nowhere to hi-i-i-ide

There's no easy way out
So we try aga-a-a-ain
I liked you better when
We were just frie-e-e-ends
Ye-e-e-es

There's no easy way out
So we try aga-a-a-ain
And it's always the sa-a-a-ame
It's just a losing game

Shirley Temple at the foot of the bar
Time to take a ri-i-i-ide
East of Eden is your calling
And I'm right by your si-i-i-ide

Palm prints in the concrete
Time moves so fa-a-a-ast
Bright lights with your name it
Right out of the pa-a-a-ast
Ye-e-e-es

There's no easy way out
So we try again
It's always the same
It's just a losing game

And there's no easy way out
So we try again
It's always the same
It's just a losing game

Welcome back to Eden
Welcome back to to-o-o-own
Where up is still up
And down is just do-o-o-own

You climb so hi-i-i-igh
Then hit the earth with a thud
Mistook love for adventure
Now enough is enou-ou-ou-ough
Ye-e-e-es

There's no easy way out
So we try again, we try again
But it's always the same
It's just a losing game

And there is no easy way out
It's always the same, always the same
We could try
But it's a losing game
