I can hear you spitting in the shower
I can hear you pissing in the gutters
Home is just a house when it’s you and me alone
Make yourself cry, get out all the darkness
Singing songs like “nothing’s gonna stop us now”
Home is just a house when it’s you and me alone

They’ll put you in the ground but the dirt don’t deserve you
I won’t make a sound, let me hurt, I won’t tell you
I am such a piece of shit
It’s okay, come on, let’s all admit it

Turn the lights off, I don’t wanna see your face
Count the days down ’til I can finally leave this place
Hope is just a hand that you hold when you’re alone
Hope is just a hand that we hold when we’re alone

They’ll put you in the ground but the dirt don’t deserve you
I won’t make a sound, let me hurt, I won’t tell you
I am such a piece of shit
It’s okay, come on, let’s all admit it

It’s not like I’m the one who owes it to you, I’m just trying to get this done
And in a hundred years, who’ll care that you have won?
I thought you knew now?
’91, your house

They’ll put you in the ground but the dirt don’t deserve you
I won’t make a sound, let me hurt, I won’t tell you
I am such a piece of shit
It’s okay, come on, let’s all admit it
They’ll put you in the ground but the dirt don’t deserve you

    Song Meaning"I am such a piece of shit, it's okay, come on, let's all admit it."
    "This one's about death. And the year 1991. And the house I grew up in and sometimes, selfishly, wish we still had. It was in the mountains, just on the fringe of Country Victoria. If the smell of cut grass teleports me anywhere, it's to 63 One Tree Hill Rd. I get tingles every time I sing the chorus. Sometimes I feel guilty that I can keep going back to that well and take from it again and again. Not sure when it'll dry up? Maybe when my conscience get's the better of me. But for now, it's seems like the deepest well on the planet."
