my fingernails are scraping all the dead skin from my chest
if i am constantly becoming, will i ever be at rest?
well, there's just too much of myself bound up in everybody else
to go on.
and so i'm sloughing off the world just like a snake upon a rock
i'm leaving everyone behind, breaking the key off in the lock
and i can almost hear them muttering, can almost hear them wondering
what was wrong.
well, what went wrong?
what went wrong?
i wrote a letter to my lawyer with the letters on the fridge
i had to pick and choose my words to fit the limits of language
but still i passed on my regrets and my instructions for my earthly remains.
i made a promise to the milkman that i knew i wouldn't keep
there'll be a bottle here tomorrow, but it won't be here for me
yeah you'll be getting quite a shock, you'll need a cup of tea to steady your knees.
i hope you'll see
that this was coming from the day you met me.
