You can cry your eyes out, darling cry your eyes out
But I know why you're here
You can write your name down, go on and write your name down
But I know why you're here
And I know why you're here

But in this laundry everything is echoing now
And I am the nothing that's coming out your mouth
And I won't be saved until I learn my first name
But in this laundry everything is echoing now...

I used to believe so much more, I know, I know now
I used to say the best was still out there in front of me

But in this laundry everything is echoing now
And I'm the nothing that's coming out your mouth
And I won't be saved until I learn my last name
'Cause in this laundry everything is echoing now...

And I can feel you pushing on me every single day
I am nothing if not the things you say
But I'm gonna change
I swear I'm going to change

    Song Meaning"But in this laundry everything is echoing now."
    "This song is about writing 'Okay' (the first track on the record, the one I wrote ten years ago, remember?) in the laundry of the house that ''91, Your House' (you know, the metaphorical well place?) is about. Confusing, I know. Anyway, all you need to really know is that laundries have terrible acoustics. Everything echoes. This is somehow the third-out-of-fourth (I know that's terrible grammar) song, so far, about my family's child-hood home. Yikes. I'm sensing a pattern."
