Salutations to whom it may concern
The litter box has overflowed; the frozen dinner burned
We’re running low on wine, my man, could you please swing by the store?
My T.V.’s just reality and I can’t watch no more
There’s a shining diamond somewhere, where a kid is striking out
His dad is in the dugout, he’s foaming at the mouth
A stomach's turning sour inside of a disappointed scout
Yea, he thought he’d found the real deal, but now he’s got his doubts
So it’s over before it begins
Well I could nurse you in the triage; I could stick you with some pins
But it’s hopeless; these rules make no sense
First they say we can’t be lovers, and now they say we can’t be friends

Ruminations, this medicine don’t work
Had that same thought ten thousand times, it’s only getting worse
So we’re off temptation, but what if it’s what I really wanna do?
How could I apologize for telling you the truth?
There’s a burnt-out light bulb above my head that’s storing my ideas
There’s a yearbook on the bookshelf that can’t explain the years
I never should have signed it but, you know, summer’s coming soon
When I almost drown you gave me mouth-to-mouth beside your neighbor's pool
It was over before it began
You could’ve left me in the water, but you made me live again
And I’m sorry; I can’t pay you back
I wanna hold you ‘til the world dissolves, but we just can’t get attached
