I am a bumble bee buzzing around in the hive
I need some company, I am barely alive
I am a crooked stack of bones
I was born this way and I will die alone

The snow-covered mountain, the murder, the wedding gown
Were useful to me only as new words to write down
New words to write down.

But in Atlanta in the shimmering rain
I was struck by a vision of your face again
The water running down the drain
These are the days that will drive me insane

There is so much pain outside these walls
Our parents are in hospital, our siblings are at war
No amount of tears could clean out my eyes
I am drinking my way back down to the floor

The wide Mississippi, the whisky, the Christian town
Were useful to me only as new words to write down
New words to write down

But in Atlanta in the shimmering rain
I was struck by a vision of your face again
The water running down the drain
These are the days that will drive me insane

But in Atlanta in the shimmering rain
I was struck by a vision of your face again
The water running down the drain
These are the days that will drive me insane

Atlanta, in the shimmering rain
I was struck by a vision of your face again
The water running down the drain
These are the days that will drive me insane.
