i have your back now, you better have mine



"and i don't think war is noble,
and i don't like to think that love is like war.
and, i gotta big hot cherry bomb,
and i want to slip it through the mail slot,
of your front door.

don't leave me here.
i've got your back now,
you'd better have mine,
cause you say the coast is clear,
but you say that all the time.

so many sheep i quit counting,
sleepless and embarrassed about the way that i feel.
trying to make mole hills out of mountains,
building base camp at the bottom of a really big deal.

and did i tell you how i stopped eating,
when you stopped calling me?
and, i was cramped up,
shitting rivers for weeks,
and pretending that i was finally free.

don't leave me here.
now that your back,
you'd better stay this time.
cause you say the coast is clear,
but you say that all the time."
