about

it's a mouse trap, man.

lyrics

mouse trap...

we fought under bloody stars
we fought in the bloody bars
we live near the burned out cars
we know what the passcodes are
we know where the bodies are

for the union
for our union

we beat each other up
night after night
then somehow managed to
stumble home
under fading moonlight
and I'm still drinking
but I think- I think I'm alright
maybe I'm kidding myself
by feeling closer to you
you

when the boat got wrecked in October
as the orange oak leaves burned
and as cold water ran down Central Ave
it reminded me of the things
I'd never have
and one of the things on that very
long list
was
you
but now I guess that I'm finally
through
with
you

I guess I'm finally
through
with
you

god damn it.
