See me in the basement
Watching the water rise
See me in the classroom
Watching the seconds tick by
See me in the attic
Trying out a new disguise
See me in the hallways
Avoiding everybody's eyes

I was on a stoney beach
Watching the sea birds fly
I was looking at a mountain side
From the back of a bus, so high

The past is filled with episodes
No one will televise

I was in the basement
Watching the water rise
I was in the classroom
Watching the seconds tick by
See me in the attic
Trying out a new disguise
See me in the hallways
Avoiding everybody's eyes

I was on a stoney beach
Watching the sea birds fly
I was looking at a mountain side
From the back of a bus, so high

The past is filled with episodes
No one will televise

    General CommentSee me in the basement
    Watching the water rise

    Whenever I get drunk it's always in my friends basement.

    See me in the classroom
    Watching the seconds tick by

    who doesn't do this...

    See me in the attic
    Trying out a new disguise

    Whenever I get high it was in my friends attic.

    See me in the hallways
    Avoiding everybody's eyes

    Yeah.. I do this too.
