Cannon Rows 03:04
What you bury is nowhere on the floor below You can’t let it grow You can’t let it grow You’ve got a place you can’t afford to let that go There’s a wind on the road But you can’t run You can’t run When you’re young You can only run home When you’re trapped in the back of your own mind And you find what you can’t let go You were there for a minute And you were mine alone Then you were dead You were dead You were dead You were dead
2.
There’s an apple core On the backseat floor With not a bite to be taken more From a night ago And since some years ago There’s been nothing more So I threw it out The car window Into the garbage pile just down the road From your apartment door Where there is another Empty on the floor It was an act of will But i’m stubborn still On my father’s side And on my mother’s side And you can tell You can tilt the world Till there’s nothing more Than there was before On the banks And on the floor With not a bite to be taken more There’s an apple core

Laid out on the carpet Thinking about spiders Someone was just here To wash the sheets and dry But that won’t fix things That inside are dirty I’m tryin to convey that I’m not a real person And its making my life go By so fast now Its only the rememberin’ That I can’t forget how to do She’ll be married in November But I still remember When we took all our clothes off And swam all the way home But that doesn't matter It just doesn’t matter Cause what’s inside is an island That's been long since abandoned
4.
No matter how far I travel I'm always right here I’m the kid with the worst style Staring into the mirror I’m the light of the party When it’s all turned in I’m a shot in the heart now When it’s all growing dim I’m a skull in the garden Scaring away all the birds I’m the kid in the books that Nobody's ever heard of I’m the ghost with the most fear Staring into the eyes Of a trembling child who’s Scared half of their life There's a kid in the castle And a frog on the throne There's a kid in the castle I’m a pen with no ink A car with no gas I’m a writer with no will I’m a dancer with no cash I’m a guitar with no strings Hear the overwhelming cheers I’m a cup that’s torn open I’m a keg with no beer No matter how far I travel I am always right here I’m the kid with the worst style Staring into the mirror And yeah the one with the dumb smile Stretching ear to ear There's a kid in the castle

It was just like they said Not much would remain Well everything looked so calm Standing there in the rain It was a debt he knew He could not repay Would it be over soon Or would it remain? Oh remain Oh remain Oh remain But it was over now Nobody could be blamed Though somebody had the match Somebody lit that flame Oh flame Oh flame Oh flame We all took the ride She took all the pain Nobody had a chance To get her out of the way But oh it wasn’t gone No matter what they say Nobody had a chance It was just like he thought Not much would remain Would it be over soon?
6.
Someone's hiding out Who can't forget about Things that people do when they're free Like visitors from space Its hard to find a place To blend in and go unrecognized I'm waiting for a song I'm standing on the road With my mind outstretched to you I'm picking something up I'm letting something go Like a dog I'm fetching this to you Pictures in my mind Row of poppy fields Harmony entwined A changing gear that grinds Pictures in my mind Pictures in my brain Electrical energy Fighting drugs with pain There's a war inside Pictures in my brain I'm looking for a job I don't know what I'm doing My software's not compatible with you But this I can't deny I know that you can fly Cause I'm here on the ground without you An owner without things Angel without wings Sharpshooter without rings around you
