lyrics

Shove me around. I was in charge. It’s all my fault. Again. Bandage her up. Do you think that she'll come to?
Tell me it's all right. Show me how to ask for something bright (or hit me 'til I smile).

Here is my uncle:
He asks me, in the rapture, where I'll land. Asks if I'm a man.

He says:
"You're hardly at the age where you can say that you know precisely DICK about what pain is. Let it go, and think on this:
When the lights go out you'll have to make a fire. You will have to be a Boy Scout when the power lines fall. As the cities get cold we'll have to make a fire, when the lights go out all over the world.

"Turn around. Bodies are facts when they can be used. And you're a tiny sprout…a simple pale of shit and sentiment flailing around. Don't you tell me you know…you DON’T. Your mother was strange, she held you too close. I used to think that you was strange, but now I want you to know that here, together, in this hunting blind,
well…*I* can see where you'll go (what a man knows, when the lights go out):

YOU’LL HAVE TO MAKE A FIRE…”
&c.
