(Keep your hands clasped, keep your head interred)
Holding back our sighs
(Keep your guard closed, keep him close)
On couches we lie
(I can't ask for your help forever)
In the basement that I've grown to know, I'm pushed into these roles (prescribed to me by you) that I'm trapped inside.
Can't remember what you saw, just remember you were nauseous
(this is all we ever do and that is all we talk about)
You can meet me at the bathroom but either way I'll see you at the office
I might miss the drives; I won't miss the offense
(this is all you've ever known and that is all I think about)
And I'll shed maybe two to three tears on the day that that fool dies-
so even though we once were so attached to our bodies and each others' lives, we can't be held back by fear of what's outside.
Bit my tongue off cause you didn't know how to kiss, took my head off cause you sure learned how to hit
Straight right, saw stars both on the stage and in my eyelids
Making amends is for lesser men than you but there's still time to mend things, you'd have to ask him how much cause i haven't really been on it. My feelings are rented, my guard is open, I'm just not invested, but you'll find this out eventually.
(cutting all our ties)
I might spend my whole life alone,
(in cities we hide)
but I could not call this place a home.
(this is our new life)
Fuck all the hicks that don't like Philadelphia.
