"Because"

You know I was in love
But I didn't fall
I was tripped while spaced from up above
Now I don't feel nothin' at all
Because I've been big
And I've been small
Nowadays I don't exist at all
People promise everything
If you depend on them
All you'll have is promises
When it all comes to an end
You'll wake up in a bathtub
Smelling of lilacs can gin
The same ones that throw you out
Earlier let you in
Because I've been in
And I've been out
Nowadays I'm off that route
Do you remember early childhood?
Well I was never young
Born old and wise as sages
It's there in every song I have sung
Because I've been wise
And I've been dumb
Nowadays I'm cold and numb
Because I've been big
And I've been small
Nowadays I don't exist at all
