See that tree outside? That's my mother's flaming neck
And I don't give a fuck, you can hang me from it
I had that dream again, the one where I was licking at your hips
We spoke about babies names and how it has to be like this

See that tree outside? That's my dad's trustworthy net
And I don't need your luck, I want to be caught in it
I had that dream again, the one in a garden in a bed
We spoke about the way things change. "Don't ever talk to me again."

And when it comes, I hope that I know it
Yeah, when it comes, I hope that you're there
And when it comes, I'll try to be honest
Yeah, when it comes, I'll have my hands in your hair

Tyler taught me how to swear in the songs I thought that no-one'd hear
That the things I said were full of shit
The friends-of-friends and the bands they're in
And if this all ends and I pray it ends
I'll know some things can finally mend
They won't play this song on the radio
So I'll just drag it down on you, I know
And I'll pretend like this'll keep going
Why would you want to stop when it's a good feeling?
An ungrateful prick, I never asked for it
Now I can't stop, I just suck and spit on everyone I ever loved
"Oh my god Tom, what have you done?"
I hope they play this song on the radio but I know they won't
I just wanted you to know

Who am I to tell you how to feel your pain?
Like relief lives inside both your parent's names
Losing one but gaining one to blame!

I know you're not me!
I'll learn that one day...
I know, I'm sorry
Missing a lot of things

I know you're not me!
I'll learn that one day...
I know, I'm sorry
Missing a lot of things

    "Oh man, this song. I don't know. It's heavy. By far the most personal thing I've ever written. I'm not even sure how I'm going to sing it live, both literally and figuratively. It's about my Mum, my Dad, my brother and half-sisters, my family home, my girlfriend, my ex-girlfriends, my band-mates, my friends, my friend's friends, my loves and my hates, my fears and my regrets, my growing up, my backing down, my arrogance, my ungratefulness, my sorriness, my sadness and me."
    "Who am I to tell you how to feel your pain?
    Like relief lives inside both your parents names
    Losing one but gaining one to blame
    I know you're not me, I'll learn that one day
    I know, I'm sorry
    Missing a lot of things"
