there's a battle raging
on the other side of this drywall
the sheetrock screws fastened to two-by-fours
they would if they could
speak out against injustice and
selfish-sided arguments.
sheila shouts as she's leaving,
"there's no way i'm coming back
until you get your shit together."
his head's still a haze from today's dose of basement drug.
shane sits with his face in his hands
tries to think of a way he can bring back those better days
without giving in to her demands.
danielle's coming down the stairs
she sobs, "when is momma comin' home?"
don't you worry, and get back to bed.
everything's gonna be fine.
but the morning light will make it clear:
that it's all downhill from here.
they won't get their shit together.
and 10 years later finds sheila on husband #3
and shane just got out of county.
