lyrics

Gaps in the stairs, hands grab your toes
No peace and quiet, but we wouldn’t like that
At least, we wouldn’t know

Wrap yourself up, breath turns to smoke
I guess it must be in me, all this middle-class whimsy
Needs somewhere to go

There were names on the top bunk slats, some thoughts out of the bag
Learnt my lesson after that, think it made me who I am

You ran for a week, or so it seemed
Gasping lungs empty, tears down your red cheeks
Only 13

It comes and it goes, you pity then gloat
A flash of a smile delivered in style
And, oh, how you know

There were names on the top bunk slats, some thoughts out of the bag
Learnt my lesson after that, think it made me who I am

I live on the edge of a 1 foot high ledge
There’s promise of grazing but hardly worth bracing
So why am I scared?

There were names on the top bunk slats, some thoughts out of the bag
Learnt my lesson after that, think it made me who I am

Gaps in the stairs, hands grab your toes
No peace and quiet, but we wouldn’t like that
At least, we wouldn’t know
