up in the attic

from (turtle) by Chimney Choir



No source, no name
I landed on your planet there
And dragged my days away

The grass grew tall
Driving by you couldn't see the
Worn down clapboard walls

And we broke too slow
I watched us from a distance
Like some television show

Oh, but now that house is gone
And I walk the streets the whole night long
But I never get lonely, I'm feeling good
Never had much use for the rest of the world

The days are short
The trees have lost their color
See the geese down from the North

No sense of weight
I'll land somewhere with someone else
Some undiscovered place

And if she lets me stay
I know just what I'm gonna say
You can't break my heart
It won't do no good
I put it up in the attic
With the rest of the world
