For a Fool Lyrics

by The Shins

Young and bright
But now just a dim light off in the distance.
A fallen stone
Following the path of least resistance.
If I still fight
It's just that I'm afraid I'll slide under that spell again.
Taken for a fool,
Yes I was because I was a fool.
Tell me what you'd do,
Lost my way when she took me to school.
So many times
Caught up in my head at night with a leash and a label.
If I could learn
Anything from this then I'd be like
The fox in the fable all right
If I still fight,
It's just that I'm afraid I'll slide under that spell again.
The way we used to carry on
Is stuck in my head like a terrible song.
Taken for a fool,
Yes I was and I was a fool.
Following the rules
Guess I was a very honest tool.
Taken for a fool,
Yes I was because I was a fool.
