lyrics

You feel it more and more
After the bar, when you walk through your door
You pull down the shade
You call up some friend
Pretend you never left where you had been

And when it’s 12 o’clock there
You let down your hair
And you sing along to some song whose thought you share

When it’s nearing the end
You understand just then
Your happiness lies for you
Somewhere

Now, with love, you unfold your maps
Plot your course in a series of thumbtacks
It is an unholy path drawn up in sheets
Our lives
We are nothing
But the ground beneath our feet

Across each foreign shape
Carved out neatly in black paint
You smooth out every crease and trace the lives of those misplaced

Those flanked by men who choked
On advancing lines of smoke
Those who never wanted life so safe

You’ve no place
You’ve no home
