Come and sit me down won't you nurture me? I don't even care if you lecture me. Someone sit me down for a cup of tea. I don't even care if you chastise me. Come on sit me down, yeah the words are free. I don't even care if you share with me. Come and push me down. Come and sit me down. Come and push me down. Oh! We could build a house. We could plant a seed. I don't even care if dies with me. Someone sit me down, yeah the words are free. I could use some with my thoughtless plea. Come on sit me down won't you nurture me? I been waiting for someone to lecture me. Come on sit me down. Come and push me down. Come and sit me down. Oh!

It's a feeling inside your gut, that's a feeling that we all know. It's the story of "rags to riches" the one that we've been told. So when's it gonna trickle down? We've been waiting for a hand to hold. We learn to live with it but I think we're at the end of our rope. You're never gonna find it if you're looking at the end of the road. You'll never learn to love it. You're always looking for a pot of gold. It's a hot, bubbly feeling. A crack in the status-quo. It's the story of "revolution" the one that we all know. I wanna watch it topple over. I think I'm at the end of my rope. It's the time of the season for the played out circus show. We're never gonna find it if we're looking at the end of the road. We'll never learn to love it. Too busy searching for that pot of gold.

I woke up at 6 am. The bed felt empty without you. I took a walk to clear my head. I know I'd never doubt you. The breeze was blowing up my legs. The pavement cracks beneath me. I know I'm broke and somewhat bent but please don't ever leave me. Alone - not for a minute or a day Alone - anesthesia you make the pain fade away. We woke up at eight am. We laughed until eleven. I don't know what we're gonna do but it will be the perfect weekend. The sun was beating on my neck. We walked up and down Bloomfield. Time with you is time well spent & all of this don't feel real. Alone - not for a minute or a day. Alone - anesthesia you make the pain fade away.

I'm sorry darling, Forgot to tend our garden. I've been guarded. Afraid to be discarded. I couldn't claim to be attentive. I should of paid you more attention. You change your tone like a change of clothes. So I watch you leave & I start to see that all of your convictions come with sleeves.

Daydream of sleeping all day. I'm fantasizing a new escape. I just wanna go home but I don't know where that is no more. It's like I'm tricking my mind. I'm on the brink of my sanity. I don't wanna grow old. At least that's what I've been told to say. Oh my! Hey, hey! Go on turn away! I've been staying awake. Finally planning a big escape. I don't wanna stay home but I'm afraid of the outside world. I'm becoming a mime, acting a bit outta line. I doggy paddle today. Drown in the spirit of yesterday.

I take a drag beneath the morning sun. The starling's song descends upon the bare and naked dawn. I daze and dream about the younger man I was.. The family trips to see you past he Hartford county farms.. So I called your number on the telephone to hear the southern charm beyond the rigid dial tone. I worry so much. Just want peace of mind. I'm searching for something that's hard to define. I worry so much. Would you be so kind? I'm searching for someone that's hard to define. I waited patient on that telephone but the only voice responding was an inbox that was full. I heard a week too late you left this world. The answering machine was left pristine and undisturbed. So I often think of you when morning comes and all the things I could have said if only I had known. So I often think of you when morning comes & all the things I could have said if only I had known.

I built you a castle made of glass. Heavy sorrow for the moments - they have passed.. I'll give you everything I have to watch you wave back. Disregard the false start. All you want is not all you are you are. It's true, you'll see differently. What you want is not what you need. You built me a bird feeder made of glass. Insecurity from he moments in my past. I'm giving you everything I have to watch you wave back. Disregard the false start. All you want is not all you are. It's true, you'll see differently.

He says he doesn't need a photograph. He says he can't forget her face. He brings her flowers flowers every morning, sets them neatly on her grave. I wonder how you're doing. I wonder how've you been. I see you in the lonely moments, laying in my bed.

Simpletons equipped and afraid, social powder keg. Trending topics say: combustions all the rage. What a twist! The efforts of progression are remiss. They've made you into phobic savages. Alleviate your moral compasses. Those puppet strings promoting ignorance.

I can't decide if I'm feeling up or down. That's the first thing you should know about me. Who likes being told they're not worth a damn? Some are used to the absurd their parents put them through. Reach for the top & you'll be disappointed when you get there & it's not what you had dreamed it was. It's human instinct to escape reality. All that we can do is sing or scream. I wish for something to connect me to everyone who's been let down or misused & I'm hoping that one day I could be a punching bag for you. Look at me now and you'll see I'm black and blue. I've been stumbling through life like a drunken stooge. Nobody likes being told to get their shit in line. Some are used to the dysfunction of their family. Scape the bottom and you'll be disappointed when you run out of all the people you can blame. It's human instinct to not accept responsibility. It's easier to shout and point the finger. I wish for something to connect me to everyone who's been let down or misused & I'm hoping that one day I could be a punching bag for you.

When will the blue jay sing? We've been waiting and we're getting old. It's a shame that all your promises melted away like a pile of snow. Waiting for a light to shine instead it breaks like a halogen bulb. Winter breathes it's final breath. Love renewed with a ray of gold. So please next time you make a decision involving all of us, consider the consequence in hurting the one that you love. Blue jay singing in the rain she sheds a tear from yesterday's frost. It's a shame that important decisions come down to a lousy coin-toss. When will the guilt in my heart fade away on the dusty endless road? My eyes are burning from the sight of you & changing the life that we've known. So please next time you make a decision involving all of us, consider the consequence in hurting the one that you loved.
