"Novel" as written by and Tim Williams....
the sky's now clear
do you like what you see
i do
we're living in your garbage
throwing out your dreams
we know
if you live your life all this way
you're stuck in the novel that no one will let you leave

you can't expect the beggar to not turn into a thief
i won't
break into your heart, got to flee the scene
we know
if you live your life all this way
you're stuck in the novel that no one will let you leave

i wrote all the right things for you
but they were not convincing
i shared all the same dreams as you
yours were all in vain
as i hope we will find out
that my penchant's all worn out

walking home alone, not trying to make a friend
if i could
put you in my pocket where you cannot run again
please don't
live your life all this way
you're stuck in the novel that no one will let you leave

i wrote all the right things for you
