lyrics

I can't go home
Rains grown my mistakes
It fertilized their seeds and vines
Until they overran my land
I tried to lock them up
Store them away
So when I look back on my life
I'll know what I did that day
And when I'm old
I’ll let it go
And give you all my memories
Until I've lost my hope
And you'll hold back
And we'll hold up the earth
And I'll sing of tired men who can barely
Find the will to live
I'll do all the work
If you'll just let me in
I can't feel my feet
They're numb from the concrete
That I was walking on
When I came to find you
You were shivering
Your bones were detaching
And you placed your fragile limbs
Inside of the casket
And you buried yourself away
To sleep among the roots
You're so much better than me
Yes you're so much better than me
You called me in
Shut the door
Said "I'm chasing you through corridors"
And cursing you conscious
Don't misbehave
Do as you're told
You'll never be what you hope
You're on your own
Follow the weeds
Trace back my sin
Greet yourself in my wretched house
There's pain in every panel
Peel them back
Burn them alive
Build a fire out of it we have no need to reconcile
I'll do all the work
If you'll just let me in
I can't feel my feet
They're numb from the concrete
That I was walking on
When I came to find you
You were shivering
Your bones were detaching
And you placed your fragile limbs
Inside of the casket
And you buried yourself away
To sleep Among the roots
Of trees standing so high
Where your soul takes off to fly
And it soars overhead
Like roman candles
But you never let me in
Why didn't you let me in
I would've done the work babe
But you didn't want me
You should've let me in
I would've at least tried
But you never opened up your doors
So your light escaped you
To where it fled into the caves
And slept five hundred days
It listened to the waves
As they would lap its boat
And they were beckoning you home as I
Sung songs of your departure
And I watched you slam out the door
As you screamed inside the pasture
You are so much better than me
Yes you're so much better than me
Our love sank like treasure hidden beneath the sea
Yes you're so much better than me
We faded like light from an old man's eyes
When he realizes he has no life left In his bones
And he'll look back on youth as rain fills his eyes
Singing "you're so much better than me.
Yes you're so much better than me.
You are so much better than me
You are so much better than me."
