lyrics

The season’s changing, we’ve somehow aged
Your pulling away now; I want you stay
Shower curtains ripped from rings
I’ve seen bigger holes in other things

Scattered clothes on floors
Replaced with dirtied leaves and shattered glass
Backyard temper tantrums
How’d you close the distances so fast?

Won’t you talk to me?
Won’t you talk to me?
All I hear are screams.

Kill the lights I don’t wanna see you here tonight
I’m cleaning up your mess
That left all the rest of us
Wading through your soggy, soaking past
I’m cleaning up your mess at last

The basement’s not the best place
The contemplate winning the race
Winter’s here and you are scared
My presence leaves you unprepared.

Last days spent in bed naked
After you rolled under sheets twice
But Vietnam’s not loud enough
To drown out all your aching frights

Won’t you talk to me?
Won’t you talk to me?
All I hear are screams.

Kill the lights I don’t wanna see you here tonight
I’m cleaning up your mess
That left all the rest of us
Wading through your soggy, soaking past
I’m cleaning up your mess at last
