lyrics

My life in a Marriott
Begs for breath of a friend
Or friendly stranger
Sun daggers slicing through the blinds
As my head hosts ghosts
Of former lovers

And if I was less scared
Now would be the proper
Time to weigh one drug
Over the other
And I think Katie does coke
But it'd be too weird to ask
So I won't bother

Every once in a while
It feels good to be a little cynical
To see every car I pass
On these Maine country roads
As a possible portal
To where Craig still plays kickball
And Jaime's dose was under
And Lisa's car wasn't dismembered
On the 6th of November
Every once in a while
It feels good to think of
Nothing at all

Sweater weather September
In Orono
Driving through U Maine
Girls own the campus quad
For football parents dot the bleachers
Kids get high underneath
Divert with burning leaves
And earned applause

In front of Androscoggin Hall
My car comes to halt
And a girl tussles her hair
In her rearview mirror
In a nearby car
And my heart stalls

Every once in a while
It feels good to be a little cynical
To see every car I pass
On these Maine country roads
As a possible portal
To where Craig still plays kickball
And Jaime's dose was under
And Lisa's car wasn't dismembered
On the 6th of November
Every once in a while
It feels good to think of
Nothing at all
