Lyrics

Clean

Written By: Kara Hetz

There's a halfway house I'm going to
It's not so far away
A thought or two
My room will have white walls
and pictures of an ocean or nepal
and pressed sheets too
I'll walk the gardens and attend the group therapy
I'll start anew

And then it won't begin
This hunger in my skin
Sending me into oblivion again

The fix is quick and it's so sweet
just like brown sugar in my veins
I'm going down (going down)
And then for a day or two I don't feel anything at all
I say I'm through
I fight for breath I pray for peace
and throw my heart against the wall
What more to do

Nothing in my hands
Nothing up my sleeves or in my
heart or in my plans

One day I'll come clean
Gonna be so clean
One day I'll come clean
Gonna be so clean

I might be strung out
But the strings are really keeping me alive
I know I'll slip and I might falter
But somehow I'll arrive
My walk is straight
My path is narrow
And my eyes are filled with hope
Will it save me from collapsing like a telescope
And spoil the view

Nothing in my hands
Nothing up my sleeves or in my
heart or in my plans

One day I'll come clean
Gonna be so clean
One day I'll come clean
Gonna be so clean

Don't need to feel so fine
I can quit you anytime
I'll just go back once more and
Lay on your bedroom floor and oh
I'm beautiful again

Mexico

Written By: Kara Hetz

How would you know
Where I’d relish to go
Egypt or Sicily
Or Boston in the snow

You with all the answers
The questions come and go
Mexico
Mexico

How would it be
If you’d lavish on me
A token remembrance
Of England by the sea

You with all the answers
The questions come and go
Mexico
Mexico

Leave your shoes by the back door
Your riddles on the floor
Eight hundred miles to the edge of the rug
I’m closer than you know

What if you found
In the smallest of towns
A map of your promises
Your voice the only sound

Me with all the questions
The answers come and go
Mexico
Mexico
Mexico
Mexico

After the Dance

Written By: Brandon Harvey

After the Dance

After the dance we can drink together
We'll take our chance and we'll sink
Into the floor
That's what it's for

After the dance we can sing together
We'll pay no mind to the mockingbird
Over the door
Over the door

CHORUS:
You've been asleep a long time
You've been far from home
You've been awake all night
You've been far from home
It's better than being alone
After the dance

After the dance we can think for a minute
We'll find a hole and we'll live in it
And keep ourselves warm

We'll see the sewers of Paris together
We'll stack the bones under the river
Under the storm

You've been asleep a long time
You've been far from home
You've been awake all night
You've been far from home
You've been asleep a long time
You've been far from home
You've been awake all night
You've been far from home
It's better than being alone
After the dance
