we met on the bus
and it was canada day
we crossed into detroit, and the heat was insane
but the station was calm
and she walked out of view
threw a brick with a note through the ticket counter window
it said: i'd rather live in my basement
i'd rather cultivate palm trees
i'd rather move to new england
i'd rather shatter and freeze

then i ran out the door
she ran out of it too
the cops gave chase, but they got confused
so we escaped to her apartment
on the 30th floor
she had a great view
but that only counts for the non-blind
that's why: i'd rather live in my basement
i'd rather cultivate palm trees
i'd rather move to new england
i'd rather shatter and freeze

i said, seriously
you're sleeping alone
you know that's a waste of your recharge time
but she responded to me
like she governed her home
nobody sleeps here, i never sleep here

i hear they're draining the lake now
i hear they're shutting the fountains off
they plan to alter the shoreline
they plan to make it all clean
so let's set fire to both sides
let's leave a message they'll hear - let's scream
let's send a signal through coax
let's have them bend the terrain, destroy the lake and make a stream
