lyrics

I’m not superstitious
But I still tap the ceiling of my car
When I make it through a light
Just as it turns red
And I don’t believe in much
And I rarely wish on stars
After all, they’re light years away
And they’re probably dead

I’m not superstitious
But every time I eat Chinese
I refuse to read my fortune
Until the cookie’s gone
Maybe I just want people to think
I’m quirky and unique
But if that’s the case
Then why do I do it when I am alone?

I’m not superstitious
So I’ll never call Macbeth “the Scottish Play”
Or turn, spit, and swear
And ask to be let back in
Just to prove there’s no curse
I say it thirteen times every opening day
But I get worried sick if I don’t commit
That cardinal sin

I’m not superstitious
But my lucky $2 bill
Never leaves my wallet
No matter how broke I get
Six years ago some guy told me
To take it somewhere cool and pass it on
I took it all the way to France
But I haven’t passed the buck yet

I’m not superstitious
And I laugh at those who are
I mean, come on, dude, clean up the salt
And move on with your life
But maybe I should face the fact
That all this stupid shit I do
Fills the same damn void
And helps me sleep at night
