there's crayon on your wall again
illegible declarations
he was in your apartment
looking for duke ellington
while you were
far east sweetheart
this is just a guess
but when he blew all your bridges down
he dug a hole into the ground
and then he talked till you thought he'd smothered
_ came back up underneath your covers
underneath your covers

took some coins with your head on them
put them on the locomotive tracks
when the last car passed him by, your
head was shiny as his heart was flat
and he tied one onto a string and he
made another into a ring
and now you're living all over him
and it doesn't have to be so undercover

why do you keep me around
after you've made yourself out of bounds?
why don't you take back your front door key?
why don't you just say no?
why don't you just say no?
why don't you just say no to me?

you filled yourselves with secrets
'cause your souls were just a lie
and underneath the cover-up, your
bodies were just a compromise
and you should
never compromise.
