So I'll dig a hole in my room
From Birmingham and back again for you
In the end they say we'll see the truth
What a shocking beauty we can both abuse

So I folded my hands to a bird
The shadows made you laugh
They made you sunburned

And I stitched my faith into your shirt
To make sure nobody but me was getting hurt
And you love being cast as the fool
In a movie no one ever pays to sit through

Just calm down it will be over soon
And god I wonder what it is I'd do without you

Do you really like being alone?
Do you really like being alone?
La di da da da da

And the lord made me confront my past
We asked each other to explain the mess
I believed with enough good I'd mend
But any good I had was always simply tepid

And I tried hard to sing like they did
With my arms raised in the air yeah I was praising
You said that when we died it would send
But even baby Jesus knew that I was faking

Do you really like being alone?
God damn of course you don't
Do you really like being alone?

Do you really like being alone?
Wouldn't blame you if you went back home
And got an actual job
And you kissed your wife and your two daughters
Like I wished I could
And I think that we'd be free
Oh my god I think you'd finally feel free

I don't really like being alone
God of course I don't
I don't really like being alone

I don't really like being alone
I think I might just go back home
And get an actual job
Stop selling my soul to the devil
He buys so much merch from us
And I think he'd set us free
Yeah I think he'd cut the chains
And set you and me free

Do you really like being alone?
Cause I don't really like being alone

Do you really like being alone?
I think I might just go back home
And get an actual job
And tell both my redneck neighbors
To bring their dogs inside
And I could get some sleep
Cause I think that all I need
Is a decent night sleep

    tempered should be tepid.
