Hit the lights and hit the ground/Take your cover and look around/Oh the tremor's passed but I'm still seething/Overdressed and undersold/Unaware of what you hold/I'll come in last cuz I'm still teething/Trudging pass our primes/While we're doing time for teenage crimes oh why/So hit me up sometime/When you're lonesome for the life you knew/You're here today/But not to stay/And I would not hold that against you/Left behind one step behind/Just when I thought I was/Starting to gain on you/Left behind one step behind/When I thought I was/Starting to catch up/Now I could use a push/You're wooden, you wouldn't call/This an ambush would you/You're on your toes, on your guard/Cuz I appear to take it hard/Don't bother, I'll re-use the refuse/It's a gift you would not buy/You're more afraid to age than die/So you struggle like you awoke in a coffin/Trudging pass our primes/While we're doing time for teenage crimes oh why/So hit me up sometime/When you're lonesome for the life you knew/Cuz you won't stay/And that's ok/I said I won't hold that against you.

If all your coiled thoughts could unwind/You could get a bit of slack in your mind/And all your jagged parts could be smoothed/The smallest knife, you won’t feel it/No ragged hems to drag a needle through/You just can’t stand to be tied but you know that loose ends they fray/20 years now to the day/Dead pilgrims, lost children/New skin, but the bodies get swept away/Yeah the house still stands but the bodies get swept away/Like mossy monuments/First thoughts are harsh in first light/When barbed ideas keep you down all night/So let it rip, let it dip/Stare down the terror in the error/Won’t count for much but I’ll be there/Not exactly what you wanted/But try to let go of the sadness/And it’ll let go of you too/New houses can be haunted/So throw the drapes and let in the day/Or go down this way/Know what you’re talking about when you talk about fixing me/Did you ever want to see/Dead pilgrims, lost children/New skin but the bodies get swept away/Yeah the house still stands but the bodies get swept away/Like mossy monuments to our unlucky rise and fall.

Well I was right behind you all the time/Waiting my turn to speak my rehearsed lines/But it caught in the throat, you will or you won’t/I strained for the note but the wind knocked it out of me/Are you always on a holiday?/Is it twisted up in your DNA?/When you’re on the road, think of me/The less you talk, the less you need to say/Well I was right behind you all the time(And I hoped you might turn back to catch my eye)/Waiting my turn to speak my rehearsed lines(Oh I practiced so many times)/But it caught in the throat, you will or you won’t/I strained for the note but the wind knocked it out of me/Knocked it out of me.

Tipped off to the iron way/Smoke stacks in the glare of day/Time stops if you know the way/Switch back to the older days/Soak up all the gamma rays/And lead on if you know the way/Keep off of the grounds/And the burial mounds/Leave your human hands alone/And don’t bother coming home/Cuz I’ll be gone, I’ll be gone/And you can all reach out for the things you want (yeah)/I’ll be gone, I’ll be gone/I never meant to stay so long/Slow clap for your work today/Well done, will you always stay?/Honey don’t go walkin out, ok?/Steel trap’s gonna spring on me/Snap shut like a sense memory/Nevermind, no need to set me free/No getting over, just do it, don’t take it slow/Not over or under but through it, straight down the row/Soaking in this dry shower of verbs/It flutters the limbs but shatters the nerves/The question won’t matter if the answer is no.

I stand in deference to the seat you gave away/I'll set the place like it was mine/We'll use the method for the roles we're set to play/And if you're cut then it's your dime/Quit stalling/You're in the fight of your life/Quit calling/If you need me, come over tonight/Facts come in rations, whatever you find/If you feel you've lost me too/You must be out of your mind/You'll learn to like my face/Just look, and look again/I'll mirror back your better side/So use me like a brace/And step, step again/Till in the sulphur pool you slide/I will walk with you, just like a stone in my shoe
