“Good Help is So Hard To Find” by Death Cab for Cutie

Lyrics:

You’ll never have to hear the word “no”
If you keep all your friends on the payroll
The non-disclosure pages signed
Your secret’s safe between those lines
The scaffolding will cheer and console you
But remember what your mother told you
That good help is so hard to find
For people that are so refined

You’re trying to turn into the skid
In this never-ending grid

[Chorus]
There’s a long, slow fade
To a darkened stage
And I hear you say
“Only a fool gives it away”
Only a fool would give
Only a fool gives it away

You said you wanna stake out your claim
High above the city from where you came
Don’t you know the air’s so thin?
It starves the brain of oxygen
I know it’s such a dangerous place
For there are more ascensions than there is space
Angels causing accidents
The camera phones’ll document
But if I start to levitate
Pull me down with all your weight

[Chorus]
There’s a long, slow fade
To a darkened stage
And I hear you say
“Only a fool gives it away”
Only a fool would give
Only a fool gives it away

[Instrumental]

You’re trying to turn into the skid
In this never-ending grid
But you should know it’s not ideal
All those hands upon the wheel

[Chorus]
There’s a long, slow fade
To a darkened stage
And I hear you say
“Only a fool gives it away”
There’s a long, slow fade
To a darkened stage
And I hear you say
“Only a fool gives it away”
Only a fool would give
Only a fool would give
Only a fool would give
Only a fool gives this away
