Everything Must Go

Album: New Again (2009)
  • We found a house
    With a yard
    And moved all of my things in
    And most of your things in
    And honey I was proud of it
    Yeah honey I was proud of you

    You quote the good book
    When it's convenient
    But you don't have the sense
    No you don't have the sense
    To tie your tangled tongue
    Instead you slash it through the mud

    And some boxes
    That hand me down couch, and chair
    They used to be at your church
    We borrowed them from there
    A cabinet record player
    With nothin' but James Taylor
    Tore the carpets from the corners
    To put in that hardwood floor
    I'd be a fool to have asked for more

    You quote the good book
    When it's convenient
    But you don't have the sense
    No you don't have the sense
    To tie your tangled tongue
    Instead you slash it through the mud

    You quote the good book
    When it's convenient
    But you don't have the sense
    No you don't have the sense
    To tie your tangled tongue
    Instead you slash it through the mud

    (Instead you slash it through)
    The love you had but couldn't name
    The past that we were stuck between
    Beside myself I stopped to think
    Lord, what have I done?

    You quote the good book
    When it's convenient
    But you don't have the sense
    No you don't have the sense
    To tie your tangled tongue
    Instead you slash it through the mud

    You quote the good book
    When it's convenient
    But you don't have the sense
    No you don't have the sense
    To tie your tangled tongue
    Instead you slash it through the mud (mud)Writer/s: Adam Burbank Lazzara, Edward Reyes, Mark O'Connell, Matthew Fazzi, Matthew A. Rubano
