Grounds gone cold and
I let all the zinnias die
My legs both broke and
I don’t even remember why

I’m calling out to you but
You don’t even wanna try
Don’t even wanna lay down and die
with me up in this tomb
The flowers dead son,
cause I can’t seem to find my thumb
It’s just my head some
I never meant to call you dumb

Flap your hands round
and Tell me why you wouldn’t come
Underneath the ground at
Six foot one with me
up tin this tomb

Silence is a virtue
In the case of mom and kings
I got friends up in the dirt too
When the stuff falls of the string
You want someone whose better
Gonna tell you what to do
Take my pulse and wear my sweater
Gonna ravel all of you

The birds keep weaving
and tie a marker round my feet
I’m stuck believing
We’ll never squirrel enough to eat

Call me Sinker
and say the rose was never sweet
I’ll believe it when you’re reposing sweet
with me up in this tomb
