Hardcover Book

lyrics

// returning that hardcover book to the woman that you stole it from hoping she’ll tell you who it’s by / but her lips are sealed she thought you left town years ago and filled in the gaps with better lines / and i can barely watch as you read she had died two weeks after your encounter / and we take our time making sure we’re keeping busy as her funeral goes by / oh it’s not our problem now / we’re the only ones laughing now / you always knew this was how / this whole thing would play out / we’re the last ones of our kind / those kids who tear up their old photos so that they could tell the rest of the the world why / they were failures by design / and putting people into categories buys the executives some time / and i’m here backstage / taking shots without a chaser hoping it just might replace her / but these days, these hazy days / burn the activist right out of me so i can finally say / oh it’s not our problem now / we’re the only ones laughing now / you always knew this was how / this whole thing would play out / this whole thing would play out / we’re high and praying that bears carry us away //
