Your mother's mother called me on the phone
She showed me what it means to be alone
She told me, "When I go home, there's no one home"

I see you drowning sideways in the light
A wave of wool crashing down around your eyes
"When I go home, there's no one home"
When you go home, it won't be home

A constant's set in like the heavy midday sun
And time is melting, you can't muster strength to run
But look I'm here, I'm here to hold you until it's done
Oh, don't cry, no, don't cry

The braving dogs, they're pulling chains out of the mood
Running loose, wreaking havoc around the neighborhood
You find you're fainting at the slightest sight of blood
Well, that's why, oh, that's why

You're alive
If you won't think it, I will think it, I will
You're alright
Though you don't think it, I do think it, I do

Do you remember when you called me on the phone?
You told me how it hurts so much to be alone
You told me, "When I go home, it isn't home"
"When I go home, it's just not home"

A high that sets in like a heavy midday sun
A world is melting, you can't summon strength to run
But I'm alert and you can rest assured it's done
Oh, don't cry, no don't cry

You know you got to pull your chain out of the mud
Show your teeth around, your teeth around the neighborhood
Although you still faint at the slightest sight of blood
And that's why, yeah, that's why

You're alive
If you won't think it, I will think it, I will
You're alright
Though you don't think it, I do think it, I do

(I'm not going to wait
Yet another day
Going on about you
Say what you will say
Not another day
More marching around you)
