lyrics

i watch my friend
get on that bus again
and there ain't nothin in his head
but the thoughts that sit all limp
and scream of 'shoulda did's and 'coulda been's

as the other split that deer in two,
she wondered what its mother's gonna do
when she finds it sitting limp and
screaming with its hooves beside its
head?

when does it end?
i've got those thoughts again — the ones that permeate the bed,
and i guess that,
no matter what i do,
i see everything through a tinted lens
the mirror stares back
it can't stand the view
"oh man, what's that fucker gonna do next?
my bet's that there ain't nothin
pounding loud inside that chest"

i remember that we left the yard with
clover braids and id cards and
you met my eyes when we told each other that it's not so far

i remember how we'd separate from
isenthalpic love's embrace
the truth gets chased with the tap to
drown out the aftertaste

my muscles? oh, they never do what i tell them to
who knew there could be a group of such lazy dudes?
i blame my mom
i blame the curtains
i blame the thermostat and the bedsheets
i blame everyone but me
