about

Concerning the sounds of your parents fighting through the walls

lyrics

WTLFO
Behind the/ Behind plaster, after bedtime
We listened, just listened: we’re children learning lies.
What big words! Such big words that barely try to hide
A fight that/ A fight we hope our house survives

I’ll stand in the dark and learn about mid-life,
Well it’s lonely in here but lonelier outside
Why fight if you’re just gonna let indiscretion slide?
When I grow up is this where I’ll arrive?

I’m sleeping
No really
Don’t believe me?
I did it for you.

I’m sick of hearing my name between the lines
And walking to school still tangled in their vines.
I’ll see the stains of strained kids’ mirrored binds
When I grow up I’ll leave all this behind.

I’m watching the light go on and off
The fact that they share us? Not enough
And purple specs will take their place
And give me comfort just in case…

So: “Later/ my gator. Sorry, gotta fly”
Missed Monday!
My Monday
Disappearing on game night

Proud Mothers and fathers and lovers intertwined
Warped web of wanting what they left behind.

I’m sleeping
No really
Don’t believe me?
I did it for you.

I’ll stand in the dark and learn about mid-life,
Well it’s lonely in here but lonelier outside

I’m watching the light go on and off
The fact that they share us? Not enough
And purple specs will take their place
And give me comfort just in case…
