When leaky holes and fire escapes
Set the evening for tone
You and your holy halo start to burn
And eventually just froze

Sewn into the carpet
Just trying to thaw out whatever I know
The thermostat it won't go higher
Not that you or I know

And I was drinking heavily
Burst into your bedroom belligerently
Asked her if she's done a thing
Like stepping out and making a scene

So foolishly I, apathetic
So I blamed your family
And never mended it

Shitty brakes and balding tires
We're out around on the road
You and my little sister
Flashy, frequent, scariest snow

And we returned just fine
Started to crack your analytical code
By the time you're convinced, I know

When I was drinking heavily
I burst into your bedroom confusingly
Yelled about a bunch of things
That if you looked you'd never see
For all eternity

And I blamed you for not being
Someone you could not be
Someone you'll never be

Now I see everything
And everyone you see
Killing time alone inside
A stripped and naked-est home

Couldn't catch my brain up
With the sights and fear that I saw
Fell into the doorway
Just hoping you had left the guitars

It's way too late for calling anyways
I guess I'll doze off
It's way too late for calling anyways
I guess I'll doze off

It's way too late for calling anyways
I guess I'll doze off
It's way too late for calling anyways
I guess I'll doze off
It's way too late for calling anyways
I guess I'll doze off

I've been drinking carefully
I creep into our bedroom
And watch you sleep

My mind it wanders onto things
That if I try I can't explain
As if there's something worse

As if there's something worse
To have weaned away your worth
When I was so absurd
Well, is there something worse?
