lyrics

Make a mess and Then just clean it up and
Try your best to ascribe meaning to something
While the rest encode their little secrets
I pretend when I cursed you I didn't mean it

Let's watch something I've never seen
Let's practice infidelity
Change tactics
Pass it on the right
Then crash into the traffic light

Oh Congregate
With those who you think like you
Go on a date
With the first one who says yes
Yes you are late
Late for the homecoming dance
Dance till the day
Light breaks and you pass out
On a couch
You cannot remember ever
Arriving at this house
So you grab you're stuff and you
Get yourself out
Out of the situation
Without a doubt you don't deserve an explanation

Life lessons take a lifetime
My senses are desensitized
I'm begging for a refund
On all my years of wasted time
The ghosts are in the garden
Waiting for me to gather food.
I'm inside and I'm starving
I knew there was never room for you within this little heart of mine
I'm still dying to try though
To stuff you deep inside my bones but God he closed the window
And the doors been locked for years and the key is lost for good
The locksmiths out of town and this is a rough neighbourhood
So I'll retreat into my bunker where the demons they can't have me
I'll stay silent think about when I had a tribe and family
And I'll hope that angels guard me while the lunatics go out to play
I swear to you I never wanted it to ever go this way
Now you can have my hat and coat they have no value here to me
I wonder though If you did know how incredibly dear to me
You have always been
Now I'm finished for the day
I swear to you I never wanted it to ever go this way

Alone in their bedroom
A little girl hovers
Over her newborn brother.
Whispers to him
'Tell me about God. What's he like? Where's he from? I think I have almost forgot.'
