The West Coast Lyrics

Somehow I always end up at the beach
The roads lead to the Five and up the coast
No matter where I go, I end up in the same place
Staring at the union of the sky and sea
The sun hits the horizon every evening
And the people trickle back into their homes
They don't know my life when the waves are unseen but heard
Here I'll stay and let the sound drown out the noise
I'll be ignored, a dark soul on the west coast
The west coast
The west coast
Here the default is a smile and the skin is perfect
I guess if I was ever noticed
They'd be envious
Not a wrinkle on my blank face
But people have their gaze to the sky
And you can't see past the sun in their eyes
Well I'm a creature from the moon
An alien to the light
A dark soul on the west coast
A dark soul on the west coast
I wonder where the fault lies
I don't know if it's the coast's or my own
No matter where I go, I'll end up just a shadow
And I don't know whose faults are the worse
Or which of us will shake the earth first
I don't know who will snap first
I can't see
Maybe we'll all just slide down into the sea
There I'll stay and let the sound drown out the noise
Toss me around
Be the current's little toy
The west coast
The west coast
Here the default is calm and the standard is perfect
I guess if I was ever noticed
They'd be envious
Not a wrinkle on my blank face
But people have their gaze to the sky
And you can't see past the sun in their eyes
Well I'm a cold spot on the sun
A man of night and of truth
A dark soul on the west coast
A dark soul on the west coast

Somehow I always end up at the beach
The roads lead to the Five and up the coast
No matter where I go, I end up in the same place
Staring at the union of the sky and sea
The sun hits the horizon every evening
And the people trickle back into their homes
They don't know my life when the waves are unseen but heard
Here I'll stay and let the sound drown out the noise
I'll be ignored, a dark soul on the west coast
The west coast
The west coast
Here the default is a smile and the skin is perfect
I guess if I was ever noticed
They'd be envious
Not a wrinkle on my blank face
But people have their gaze to the sky
And you can't see past the sun in their eyes
Well I'm a creature from the moon
An alien to the light
A dark soul on the west coast
A dark soul on the west coast
I wonder where the fault lies
I don't know if it's the coast's or my own
No matter where I go, I'll end up just a shadow
And I don't know whose faults are the worse
Or which of us will shake the earth first
I don't know who will snap first
I can't see
Maybe we'll all just slide down into the sea
There I'll stay and let the sound drown out the noise
Toss me around
Be the current's little toy
The west coast
The west coast
Here the default is calm and the standard is perfect
I guess if I was ever noticed
They'd be envious
Not a wrinkle on my blank face
But people have their gaze to the sky
And you can't see past the sun in their eyes
Well I'm a cold spot on the sun
A man of night and of truth
A dark soul on the west coast
A dark soul on the west coast
