Story Behind the Song

This song is kind of based on the character Holden Caulfield in J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye.

Lyrics

I've been told that life's a game
and we must play by the rules
we should play to wealth and fame
but we should not play the fool
people never believe
anything they see

you are far and away
too many words to obey
you are far and away
to blame

the thing about the fairer sex
is you don't know what they think
wisdom tattooed on my heart
in indelible ink
try to curb my own desire
but I'm a glorious liar

you are far and away
too many hearts to break
you are far and away
to blame

hold on to my christian name
'cause it's not eminent domain
and I'll play my way any day

in the backseat of my mind
something's taken the wheel
I've forgotten how to mind
I remember what's real
if you want to know the truth
I'm the voice of youth

you are far and away
too many souls to save
you are far and away
to blame
