After the summer your father got sick
I watched as your roof turned from rocks into sticks
Who is your humble, and who is he humbling you with?

The train leaving Thursday
I'm scared you'll be on it
The barren family keeps knee on the farm
I wanted to save you but I realize it's just too late
Some heroes aren't meant for saving heroes anyways

Well I read a book on my favorite band
And I was inspired the afternoon of it
And I need to tell you that I'm sorry but it's just too late
Some men need inspiration
And other men just need to be laid
And I love you
And I love you

I knew you meant it when we cried aloud
Trying to shake you and trying to cloud your brain with your mentioning me
I could be so scared
So many to be mentioned and other men only need to be scared

And I am dead for you
And I am dead for you

I tried to shoot deep into the wound
Filled all my lungs with the poison you knew
Ruined me, baby, you don’t ruin me
It’s too soon
Other men need saving
Other men just need to be ruined

And I am dead for you, for you
And I am dead, I am dead for you.

    General CommentMy guess is the book Andy's referring to is the 33 1/3 series book on Neutral Milk Hotel's album "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea" since I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that NMH is his favorite band.

    General Commentthis song is called "Who is your humble?". you can find it easily off an older post on their website. its under an alternative press release with 2 other songs. These lyrics are so amazing it has recently become a true favorite. this version is different than the recorded one. "Who is your savior, and who is he saving you from?"
