When all is said and done
We're not the only ones
Who look at life this way
That's what the old folks say

But every time I'd see them
Makes me wish I had a gun
If I thought that I was crazy
Well, I guess I'd have more fun
Guess I'd have more fun

Ooh, the catcher in the rye again
Ooh, won't let you get away from him
It's just another day like today

You decide
'Cause I don't have to
And then they'll find and I won't ask you
At anytime or long thereafter
If it's cold outside
As I'm imagining it to be

Ooh, the catcher in the rye again
Ooh, won't let you get away from him
It's just another day like today

When all is said and done
We're not the only ones
Who look at life this way
That's what the young folks say
As if they'd ever change
That's not who am I to say

But every time I'd see them
Makes me wish I had a gun
If I thought that I was crazy
Well, I guess I'd have more fun

'Cause what used to be's
Not there for me
And ought to find
Someone that belongs
Insane like I do

On an ordinary day
Not in an ordinary way
All at once the song I heard
No longer would it play for anybody

Or anyone
That needed comfort from somebody
Needed comfort from
Someone who cared

To be not like you
And unlike me
And then the voices went away
From me

Somehow you set the wheels in motion
It haunts our memories
You were the instrument
You were the one
How a body took a body
You gave that boy a gun

You took our innocence
Beyond our stares
Sometimes the only thing
We counted on
When no one else was there
