By the time you were of age, an unkept sound was in you
When you hitched a ride two thousand miles west,
It came too
So you sought the healing pass of chemicals
And you swore the family you would make
Would never be hers

By the time I came of age, the unkept sound had laid plans
And when your figure sparkled out,
I did default to understand
How your medication was the fault of years of harm
How the distance was an answer to a parent's storm

But if anything, I try too hard to know just why you are
And yes, any day, I'll end what cycles pass through
I hope so

Do I lie awake like you and dwell on courses unrun?
Or decamp from small alarms that I will do as was done
Knowing how completions are an antidote to fear
And how all that sing correct in me are time delays
That you steer
Through an inner din I can't reply to throwing tall noise
And yes, any day, I'll end what cycles pass through
I hope so
At the end of the day
I'm really just a 15 year old boy
Who wishes that you
That you
Could call him in
Through the wall
Through the high wall
Through the very high wall
Through the very broad wall
And make him tea
And listen
