lyrics

At smoky dusk I watch
The black-and-white TV
From the vinyl deck chair
I swore I would never sit in again
And everything’s the same
’Til someone thinks your name

And we all look up
And we shudder deep
And we take our inventories
So that we can get to sleep
I see the things that I did
I hear the things that I said
I split the difference between history
And the mess in my head

A Kodacolor us
By a faithully-kept bed
In a room that once was mine
In a house that once was yours
A home that once was ours
Please I want it back now

And this quiet space
That we echo through
Is like a heart that’s pumping nothing
Now that it’s lost you
And the front porch may be calm and still
Like nothing had occurred
But that angry slam will always stand
As our last word

And we all look up
And we shudder deep
And we take our inventories
So that we can get to sleep
I see the things that I did
I hear the things that I said
I split the difference between history
And the mess in my head

This part was true
A sequel overdue
A happiness you rue
When that part disrobed
On the lawn, on the lawn
On the rosemary lawn
The stupid fucking lawn
That a dog pissed on
Bought your virginity back on Ebay
Frightened and excited by your World War III negligee
I want to be a dentist
Not a toy apprentice
Why am I such a misfit?
I am not a nitwit
I can’t handle it, I quit!
I can’t handle it, I quit
