Now heaven knows I got one short damn fuse
So come sit down a spell while I light up the room
If walls could talk, they'd know it all
So we live in the sticks
And aren't some fish you cancatch

And it makes my skin crawl
I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed
So what's the use?
She knew.
She knew.

He fights like hell
Because he wants to glow
And would tackle the sun
To be a bright bulb
I wonder if he'll wake us up in time

[Chorus:]
He's gray
And has to hide somewhere between black and white
It's safe but never was brave before it's over
I hope he takes you too
You too

They say attack can be your best defense
And I got mother's smile and both my dad's fists
John Doe escapes carry his name and when it's time to sign
Ask where, not why

And it makes my blood boil
Those black letter days all the mail just winds up lost

[Chorus:]
He's gray
And has to hide somewhere between black and white
It's safe but never was brave before it's over
I hope he takes you too
You too

You'll see whispers in the winter
My temper doesn't laugh
And every spring I hear them sing
I hear them sing
Every spring I hear them sing
I hear them sing
Every spring I hear them sing

He's going down
He's going under the ground
I hope he takes you too
You too
