lyrics

Spending time dead
I've been on a little deadcation
Filming on location
In the state of desperation

Spending time dead
And lacking the motivation
To even complete the application
For a visa to leave my head

A free trip to Austin
Seemed like such a bargain
My folks even pitched in
Feels like I'm still recovering

'Twas the best time I ever had
But somehow my overzealous timekeeping services
Couldn't stop me falling back down to my knees again
And that's just where I've been

Spending time dead
On a little deadcation
Riding back & forth from station to station
Searching in vain for inspiration

Still I can't say I regret
Pledging my sword to the young master
Trying to get his regime installed faster
Trying to be the brother and the fan I wish I'd had

And accepting a free trip to Austin
When it seemed like such a bargain
My folks even pitched in
Feels like I'm still recovering

'Twas the best time I ever had
But somehow my overzealous timekeeping services
Couldn't stop me falling back down on my knees again

And that's just where I've been
But I've got to get up again
I'm going back to Austin, gonna pay my own way
Gonna let the chips fall wherever they may

I know there's more to life
Than pounding on the skins
Carrying the water for the leader
Of a histrionic hipster clan

A free trip to Austin
Seemed like such a bargain
My folks even pitched in
Feels like I'm still recovering
From the best time I ever had
