Today I wasn’t even gonna take a shower
And then I got a call sayin that my cousin died in a fire
So I washed myself for what seemed like three hours
With tears and rusty water
I need some of that Calgon take me away action, immediately
Before I start scrubbing my hands hard repeatedly
I’m stuck somewhere lethargic between reality
And a fucking school video
Wake me UP

I’ve said goodbye too many times in these 22 long ones
And here I am waving again,
So long friend
I shoulda told her how this town doesn’t like it when people leave
So it finds ways to keep em’
It sows seeds and reaps em’
Now she’s part of this harvest
Different from all the others
Ask her mother how her smile touched souls and warmed cold hearts
Monique I miss you
I wish I coulda kissed you farewell
And given you that tattoo you always asked for
and when im done tatin' thug life on god’s stomach
You got next
I’m done
You gotta take what you want from it
I’m going to wash my hands
I miss you girl

    General Commenti am pretty sure it is "stuck somewhere between reality and a fucking tool video". which makes more sense, cos tool videos are really fucking weird.
    i'm not sure this works brilliantly as a song, but as a poem it is really good - the "this town doesn't like it when people leave" bit is really well-written.
    the meaning is really obvious, and really sad.

    General CommentIt`s about loss which could be taken literally or metaphorically. Either way, it`s sad. & I love the reference to washing his hands. It`s like washing away pain in denial of things.
