  • Oh, just leave it all

    We found the pipe here that leaks between the walls

    And like you it begins to all wash away from within

    No more time on your side, nothing to tie you here

    It's like sticks and stones and rubber and glue

    Letters strung together that get stuck on you

    Don’t stick around here to feed the mouth that bites you

    I can see it in your eyes and your black and blues

    Familiar is the spice and it salts your wounds

    Don’t stick around here to feed the mouth that bites you

    Oh, it’d be your shame

    If you became another hanger in the closet where you hung yourself to blame

    With the letters of your name, feel lost and rearranged

    To the corner, to the man, a man, a man

    Every day you wash your body down

    Can’t scrub away the scars beneath your skin
