We almost made it to the first half
of a life we settled on in this desert world
if all of these mountains are the oyster's shell
then we built this life here around the only pearl
if all of those holiday and birthdays
become just punctuation
tell me what's the text
coz now it's dry
and it's drying up my insides and my memory of you
tell what comes next
the TV was on as I remember
everyday
and the years blur out
monotony just paints and stays
now it's all coming down to who gets What and What
it's all impersonal
these legal documents
yeah, why am I surprised?
you get the house I get the furniture
the clock, you get the dog
I get the lawn tools and the tandem bike
I can't look you in the eye
the TV was on as I remember everyday
and the years blur out
monotony just paints and stays
now it feels so useless waking up now

    General CommentI am in love with this song. I have inferred from vocalist William Wilson that it is about vocalist William Wilson's parent's divorce and growing up in Vegas. I can totally relate to this song, as can others who have been through a parent's divorce, I'm sure.
