Was a box in the bedroom Silence-sided and capped with a fuse All the edges read "rescue" And the bottom was glued to love That fight and fire! Oh, the arsonist’s blues Just up one night and he burns down the school Well if you hire the night, boy you’re bound to eventually lose your cool Man come tumbling westward Knew a bit about sixes and thirds After a while all the hard words They got to him inside So in the cold and the dark night In the silence, when no one was nigh He could just make out that hard lie Yeah, "hate will protect you" Oh, hate will protect you, boy That fight and fire! Oh, the arsonist’s blues Just up one night and he burns down the school Well if you hire the night, boy you’re bound to eventually lose your cool

Used to bike to the lake most days if it wasn't raining too hard Didn't have much else out to do after school Later on in junior high we carved our crushes' names out With pocketknives and skipped a stone or two, like you do Can't help just trying to forget Those days so easily passed by Good times, so wearily desired! I can't remember Back then I was looking hard for the quick and impartation For everything to feel as real as you For months then in the summertime when it rained to consolation And nothing was wrong at all Can't help just trying to forget Those days so easily passed by Good times, so wearily desired! I don't remember Good times, so wearily desired! I can't remember I don't remember

Young girl came Tracks in her diary And walked the island town She spoke my name Flushed with desiring And plied with tearful eye But I’d long drowned River in the dry Divorcée Old and remembering Struck my dreaming down She said, "Mind what may– "Boy, start your trembling" But neither can she buy What I’ve long found River in the dry With shores on the empty expanse of sand Lay down, you weary, lay down Fill all your emptiness Once I came Heavy and wandering Laid my struggling down Changed my name Changed my desiring One day you will lie Where I long drowned River in the dry

Hey If your summer coat is turning grey Know My subtle touch is ne’er mislaid (and) Think no more about it Though You haven’t now the strength you had Still You needn’t let your heart grow sad Think no more about it When The moments weigh on you like sand And There’s nothing seems to go as planned And You cannot notice all the moonlight Moonlight Son You’re growing closer to the end But think no more about it
