bulletproof was the deal.
nothin' was said about windproof or water resistant,
though the flood stains broke the seal,
bulletproof was the deal.

when i sing,
i think about all the times when i was dying.
when i sing,
i think about all the water molecules beautifyin'.

so i'll do my best.
with this train in my chest.
i'll sing these songs,
though i prefer it if you'd sing along.
but, i'll sing them anyway,

i'll sing them anyway.

when i tell you i'm a cowboy,
it means now i'm a boy,
who knows how to nothin' but keep ramblin'.
and when i tell you i'm a lover,
it means that there's no other,
reason for me to live.
