lyrics

VERSE 1
tiny capsules hold
back the release we're told
simply inevitable

basement dwelling husband
pay your taxes, clean your guns
remember back when life was fun

PRECHORUS
discovered circa 1962
a likeness that's always haunted you
beliefs that keep grief hung around
like a jessica albatross

CHORUS 1
you're better than this

VERSE2
is this a joke in ill taste?
or declaration of disgrace
a generation overdue
you slowly crawled, prawn
now the man I knew is gone

Bursting naked through the family portrait



prechorus 2

thumbs in the eyes, blessing of the christ
showed up unannounced at a lover's doorstep

CHORUS 2&3
you're better than this
I've never been so scared, not in my entire life


BRIDGE
call the cops he's on the run
androscoggin baptism
jump in the river to clear your name x2


Been a peculiar day, but I'm just glad that you're still here


CHORUS 3
you're better than this
I've never been so scared, not in my entire life
