lyrics

If the man in the back was any worse of a dresser
I’d take off my mask and I’d breathe you forever
But the wheels on my chair only roll to the door
And the window just lets the light in

So give me a ribbon and group me together
With the fingernail biters and the nervous heavy sweaters
On a fresh bed of greens so the neighbors feel better
At least ’til the doctors arrive
I’m trying to get you but lately that takes me a long time

But the highway patrol in the desert won’t listen
To the tips of my fingers that I cut off in the kitchen
I’ve got nothing to do with the movies
I’ve got nothing to do with the rain

So next time I’ll bring spoonfuls of oil
That blacken my teeth and contaminate the soil
And leave me to wonder if the water will boil
Though I’m drinking it either way

And now I live in Medford
There’s hardly food here
I don’t deserve it
And now I want your chowder
You make me smile but you make me nervous

You’re a bad reputation I struggle to uphold
You’re a penny on the ground
You’re a deer in the road
You’re a lover, a leaver, a third-time deceiver
I used to know better but now I don’t believe her

It gets to the point where I’m trading my meals
For piles of old crumpled up automobiles
I could take to the edges or learn how to steal
But I don’t want to be here that long
Maybe it feels like I’m asking myself for my own spare change

But whether or not you’re a snake in the grass
The bad times will come and the good ones won’t last
And the vitamin C will disappear way too fast
And that’s when you know that you’re gone

And now I live on Greyhound
There’s only drunks here
I don’t deserve it
And now you’ve got me thinking
I’ll never leave here, at least not on purpose
