House Pride

from by Sun Hotel



I woke up still drunk on a screened in back porch

where i thought of how much i hate thinking about divorce

lost in conversation

whatever feels like you again

then twelve beers later i thought he was gonna cry

said "where did all that beauty go while i was doing time?"

beauty comes to those who sit

beauty left while i was sleeping in

we read the future out the palm of your hand

you were turned from a monument to a backwoods man

and all of the compliments you don't understand

left us drunk in a soccer field at 4 a.m.

and i wonder if i look like him

i woke up still young to a new record label

and i thought what i'd done just to make it all tamable

in all those compliments i don't understand

that left me in a soccer field at your command

till two drinks later

i left like a father

just to act like nothing happens

but it does

and even in the winter

with my eye on the calendar

i wonder if i look like him

i woke up still strung out from the night before

so i watched what i sung for the rest of that tour

now we're afraid of what exists

we used to belong to churches

there's no use in hiding the fact sometimes i get bored

when i hate thinking how much i hate thinking of how i'm yours

i have not come back down since
