Hey little brother, did you hear I made it back to town?
I'm getting sober, there's some things I got to figure out.
I saw the station and the light we used to run around.
I could have sworn it though the things I used to care about.

I'm so pleased to see, it's been so long,
where you been since I've been gone?
What were all those words we used to shout?

I am the great despiser.
I hold myself beside her.
I often hope for fire.
I am the great despiser.

Hey little brother, did you hear I'm slipping back and forth?
I'm getting older man, it's barely worth it any more.
I had a dream that we were sitting on the summer porch.
It seemed like everything was just the way it was before.

Oh I'm pleased to see, it's been so long,
where you been since I've been gone?
What were all these frozen letters for?

I am the great despiser.
I hold myself beside her.
I often hope for fire.
I am the great despiser.

I don't wanna care about it any more.
I don't wanna care about it any more.
I don't wanna care about it any more.
