the sun was a yellow eye in a blue face
when you came over to my place
and you said how things looked dead around here.
well that's alright if things look dead around here,
cause it's only a little while longer that things are gonna look dead around here.

and there are certain gardening skills that you don't have yet.
and there are certain gardening skills that you'll never learn.
how to leave alone what's doing fine,
how to mulch what's dying on the vine.
there are certain gardening secrets you don't know.

you said the soil looked nitrogen poor,
well, don't you worry about the soil looking nitrogen poor.
I think that's my problem if the soil is nitrogen poor.
but for myself it looks kind of nitrogen rich.

and there are certain gardening secrets you don't have yet.
and there are certain gardening skills that you'll never learn.
how to leave alone what's doing fine,
how to mulch what's dying on the vine.
there are certain gardening secrets you don't know.

    General CommentSounds like he's in denial about the decaying condition of some aspect of his life. Maybe a toxic relationship or an addiction. He's kind of shouting "You don't know me!" at some outside criticizer.
