There was nothing you could say to me
That would calm me down and put my mind to rest
Convince me things would get better

So I would lay in my bed all night
While my heart was tied to letters in my chest
With more words than I could remember

I'll turn it down, turn it down
Til there's an answer
I'll turn it down, turn it down
Til there's an answer

With you father in the factory
And your mother making medicine for ghosts
A river flows into itself

You're blowin kisses out of sympathy
But you'll remember we weren't even all that close
Like a river frozen to itself

I'll turn it down, turn it down
Til there's an answer
Til there's an answer

The graffiti on the overpass
Told a story about things that don't come true
And we drove by in relative silence

And you were always talking way too fast
And you said that was just something that you do
You talk fast when you're on an island

But when you mutter underneath your breath
I say would you say that one more time for me
And you'd say it isn't anything
Anything worth mentioning
Anything worth repeating

I'll turn it down, turn it down
Til there's an answer
I'll turn it down, turn it down
Til there's an answer
