lyrics

often times i can not stay asleep
if you don't keep the cold off of me
all my life i was sure that you would leave
if you don't take all my energy

all the while you went on tour in the 70's
your older bro was in the house smoking weed
and when your dad was on the phone with the police
he told your mom that you should all be scared of me

i come undone
at the thought of waking up
without anyone

often times i can not think of anything
when you wear the clothes
but you don't know what they mean
all your life you've been shown everything
you were turning shit into gold
alchemy

you want a future filled with kids
and old and rusted promises
you'd rather shed off all your gifts
than be the one who is patient
you got a closet filled with skins
and old and rusted skeletons
you take insignificance
and cut it out until it's perfect

i was the first to open my eyelids
you rehearse complaining to Jesus
all of the time you thought you were working

if you want to i could keep you up all hours
talking 'bout who
should be filled with love
and flowers
i got confused
i thought it was all for mother
though they haunt you
i won't be your slave no longer
i gotten used to
feelings that don't change when you're older
i just sat through another boring day in the future
in the living room
the only way to sleep hungover
i thought you knew
all the simple ways that matter
you say you could use
another couple weeks to think it over
i get confused
i thought you would change
much sooner
