lyrics

this yellow speckled world
the one I decided to live in
opposed to the one without Delta emailing me every other, every other, every other weekend

every Wednesday off Breton
on the swingset I think I see children
I think about what they might be saying
when I walk into the kitchen
for the third time, I'll make them breakfast
I'll take them to bed and tuck them in
they dream with one eye open
I whisper to them in Spanish
I'll have them speak but say nothing

I'm afraid of the future, could you listen?
could you listen, I said could you listen?
could you listen? x3
I said I'm afraid of the future, and I have my arm around her
they make me out for some sorta monster
the rivers in the back start to mend with the magenta
its a painting I think, one done by my mother

I said, "take care of the kids"
in the microwave I think I saw a reflection

there's my arm in the picture, and she's looking at the picture

we're a family
second guess my blood, I'm talking
i said im talking, im talking
you say that im speaking but im saying nothing
almost like you can hear something

I guess there are two kinds of love
and you weigh between them when you look at us
your eldest daughter, and your first-born son
first-born son
first-born son
first-born son
firsr-born son
