lyrics

Today
This is the day
Shine on your shoes
Press down your corners
‘Cause we’ll say
Can you remember how things were
Before today

Tommy D walks into a room
This is how it goes
He’s looking at zeroes and he does the math
And in an echo’s breath he knows
But he don’t want to
Nobody wants to

Nothing could be done about it
Nothing ever can
His assets were not covered
By his debts and to a man
We don’t want to see
We don’t want to be
Unwanted

When you’re tired of making it work
Don’t waste bullets in the dirt
Don’t concessions make you weak?
Open up your heart and show me

You said that it would hurt you
More than it would hurt me
The only the way that that’s true
Is if I’m under a tree
And the worms crawl in
And I can’t see any light
And I can’t feel any pain
And I’m permanent night
But I felt it so deep
Though I feel nothing now
I exploded to sleep
Oh my god I’m in heaven

And Stacks is wanted
And Billy is wanted
And Spider is wanted
And Morrie is wanted
And me

They want me
