Picked you out my pocket
And you fell into the road
You asked me if I'd make it better
Asked me if we could grow old together

But you don't mean a thing to me
So I walked by quite happily
And now I guess that you've moved on as well

Took me to the bricks you stacked to build a wall, keep peace intact
Protect your family, keep them from harm, live peacefully
But they came crumbling down the second you left town
And now your family are gone, are gone

Understand me, take me fully
Underground where I cannot be found
Understand me, take me fully
Underground where I cannot be

Found a letter that you wrote
That had been stashed inside my wall
Telling me all about your life
It had been there for a quite a while
It skipped out certain chapters that I thought had really mattered
And now I feel like I missed out

Out, baby out, get out of town
Baby out, baby out, get out
Baby out, baby out, get out of town
Before it catches up with you and you cannot withstand
Before it catches up with you and you cannot withstand
Before it catches up with you and you cannot withstand
