I try to smoke out the beast but he only gets quicker
I like to keep my head in a simple place
All the stories you tell they’re just making you cynical
Could you come and see me face to face

What do I even expect
A friend to me I can’t protect
An opening that leads to anywhere

Rocks and dirt and sweaty games
The house that bears your father’s name
The hand you held but then it let you go

Leave a mark on the door, in case I need to come back home

All the demons in backyards hiding in bushes
A machine to keep us all afraid
Whatever I took now it’s making me lazy
Can you cover for me I think that I can escape

How could I even pretend
To call you out to say I am
Better off without you on my side

A branch that blooms forgetful leaves
Rusty cans that hold your dreams
The chance to prove that you have earned your place

Leave a mark on the door, in case I need to come back home
