lyrics

Ice,
in hills of dirty snow, every muscle sore
just keep my center low, so I won’t slip and fall.
New England,
prison of small states blizzards in the winter flooding in the spring and summer hurricanes,
in Portland
winds blow in from oceans
and I can’t tell what season
and all I know is it’s another day
and in Portland
histories forgotten
families disbanded
and all I know is it’s another day
Friends,
wither underground,
Old roots with no water,
Some trees will have to die. Yeah some trees will have to die.
New England
full of old ideas,
blowing round like leaves, and I just want to leave. yeah I just want to leave.
And in Portland nobody remembers
a car crash in July because it’s another day
And in Portland
nobody remembers stealing tapes from Tower because it’s another day
Bridge
Heat stroke,
Soda on the windshield rear wheel laying flat,
and my brother looking sad
Back room,
manager that spied me
he sent a letter home,
we all read it on the porch
And I write these stories down so I can throw them out
And I write these stories down so I can throw them out
And I write these stories down
so I can throw them out
won’t you help me throw them out won’t you help me throw them out
Deep,
Deep inside my mind
the pages I should read
but I’m not ready to read them no I cannot say those words
Out loud
air carries the sound
words can’t be unheard
but are you ready to hear them with your hands over your ears?
And in Portland
mentors cast aside
villains left behind
and all i know is it’s another day
And in Portland
nobody remembers nobody even cares
if I pretend it’s a new day
