Everyone moved away while I stayed here.

In town.


I remember way back when I was something I was waiting for someone
You couldn't do more damage here with a baseball bat and a shotgun
A thousand tiny deaths are forever more painful than one really big one
You stay sharp and I'll stay indirect
I'll be on the road but you'll forget

I have nothing now.

In my empty ashtrays live happier times from when we were both thinner
The truth mixes with lies and it forms little clouds in the middle of winter
You're changing your name but some things stay the same
Like my problems get bigger
Jesus keep these things that we regret
I'll be on the road while you forget

I have nothing now

Sticky tape on cardboard and this blood on my footprints all through your kitchen
Don't be so surprised if you open me up and its plastic and neon
That you would never come back here
God its the last thing we never agreed on
The things you took leave dusty silhouettes
We were on this road but how we forget

I have nothing now
