lyrics

Let me set the scene: there are some shopping bags, and they’re swinging from
Your next door neighbor’s hands.
She was a swimmer once, but now the pools are empty
Her grocery bag’s full with nothing to do with chlorine

Don’t forget to bring that old Vogue magazine
Her eyes in the article don’t look like anything
But Evelyn you should read what she said, about the way it feels when she’s going to bed
“It’s like every single sinking ship, that a captain didn’t sink with is waiting for me, to slip into a sleep so deep that I’ll be made to lead the charge of the sunk ship fleet beneath the sea”

Cant say I blame anyone for
Having a tea party on the water floor
Without inviting anyone else
Without inviting good to stay with health

Evelyn did you read my reply?
The end of the article is hard to describe
I think I left some of the details out
She stopped addressing what the interview was about
Apparently she close her eyes and smiled and said:
“The 13 hundredth month of my life will arrive, and every breath I’ve ever held under a swimming pool will fill the tires of every car I could have climbed into and driven off of every cliff cuz that’s what cars can and do; the airbags full of the water that should have turned me blue.”
