When the fever passes
at the bottom of
the cotton in the background
in the background of the flood
dry among the, dry among the wet and the rotten

When the fever passes
next to the brimming well
the worst is more than over
and anyone can tell
When the fever passes
and we're all back in our nests
we'll be extravagant hosts
instead of imposing guests

And all that you know of this
is what you have heard
I'm not sure even the best of us
I'm not sure even the best of us
And all that you know of this
is what you have heard
I'm not sure even the best of us
I'm not sure even the best of us
can care all the time


When the fever passes
when we don't know what to do
we'll buy twice as many comforts
just like we used to do
When the fever passes
when the fever clears
we'll look back on these quietly
like they're someone else's years

And all that you know of this
is what you have heard
I'm not sure even the best of us
I'm not sure even the best of us
And all that you know of this
is what you have heard
I'm not sure even the best of us
I'm not sure even the best of us
can care all the time

When the fever passes
at the bottom of
the cotton in the background
in the background of the flood
dry among the, dry among the wet and the rotten

When the fever passes
next to the brimming well
the worst is more than over
and anyone can tell
When the fever passes
and we're all back in our nests
we'll be extravagant hosts
instead of imposing guests

And all that you know of this
is what you have heard
I'm not sure even the best of us
I'm not sure even the best of us
And all that you know of this
is what you have heard
I'm not sure even the best of us
I'm not sure even the best of us
All that you know of this
all that you know of this
all that you know of this
is what you have heard
