about

I wrote this song one day in the midst of my depression when I looked outside and saw someone on my neighbors roof; fixing it.

lyrics

I can hear him where he stands
Up above with dirty hands
The trees fall down; Unleash your hounds
To send the mailman back.. from where he came.
Cuz he brings me all your letters
and I cant believe my eyes
watching endless sheets of paper
spewing endless bits of lies
and Ive woken up amongst the hay; I lay

Oh stands a man above my bed
He stops the rain drops in my head
Says "this phase is oh so fickle"
hits you right between the eyes
and Ive come to stop the leak, thats been filling up your mind.
Can't you see Im straining just to breathe
unbeknownst to you your bleeding
As the reaper stretches out his hand
should you stay or should you go?

Entropy for you and me
Empathy for all to see
And im back to writing letters; and Ive got one in my hand
Its the saddest story ever; about a roof without a man
and the hole it kept on leaking
til the water filled the room
and i'll open up the door; if I mean to see it through
