lyrics

I’ve learned to be distant from you
a choice to be obtuse
man cannot live without control
oh to be abstract
and keep no foundation
you became a pile
in a patch of pilework
where I perch
and I had flown so far away
I break down when I think of you
in the household where we stayed
so squeaky clean and in control
oh you left the love you had
in a story you couldn’t tell
the secrets piled up
the piles were razor points that stuck
and you blamed us
I was as a child then adding pressure
and as the seams gave out
you drove in, so...
did you ever?
I would have for you
I never heard I’m sorry
I’m not here to find a “true”
you should go with what
your heart feels
I don’t want to make you stop
and now that I can see them
the piles from the boardwalk
leading out into the distance
skeleton of the old dock
I don’t want to make you stop
