I see brown on the ground and assume that it's somebody's blood
When it could've easily been saffron leaves or the remnants of mud
I don't know why I always assume the worst
Blame my parents, blame the government, blame you first

Now I'm not trying to abuse you or make you pay
But you need reminding, you didn't lose me, you threw me away
And these days I'm fine but there was a time
When I was looking for a strong foundation

To hang my sad body from
To hang my sad body from
I'm glad I didn't do it
'Cause lately I've had a lot of fun
Had a lot of fun

Now I know I didn't know the meaning of the word
Now I know I didn't know the meaning of the word
Now I know I didn't know the meaning of the word
Now I know I didn't know the meaning of the word

And so I'm moving on and I'm thinking about other things
And I bet everybody's glad 'cause heartbreak can sometimes get really boring
I met a man who said more than a handful is a waste
I feel the same way about talented people with bad taste

If I could solve the problems of the world with a child's mind
Momma Cass would give the sandwich back to Karen and they'd both survive
But there's deeper roots
I wish it were true
How high do you climb 'til you find a nice view

To throw yourself off into
To throw yourself off into
The hill's too high
The sun's too bright
The sky's too blue

Now I know I didn't know the meaning of the word
Now I know I didn't know the meaning of the word
Now I know I didn't know the meaning of the word
Now I know I didn't know the meaning of the word

(Of the word, of the word)
I'm trying to be more like the sea
Take the money and run
