When your flights are grounded
Your wallet is tight and the runway full of hail
The airport is empty
You always come to stay.

If I let you stay you might never leave, [and] finally believe what I believe.

Tonight could get cold and I've got nothing to eat
It's been years now and the machinery has crushed me faster than you
You had to lie
Like you were calm in the ground
And I was never very good at keeping my worst opinions down.

Only this time (one more night to sit and smile), and you might finally believe what I believe.

And maybe you can give me something to help me sleep.

Tomorrow the day will just beat you down. Until then I'm around.

This city plays plays a vicious host.
Some days it feels like you’re wearing someone's ghost.

You were such a strong kid
Now it seems like you get thinner every year
If I could, I would get fat and happy for you
(a satire of control).

If I let you stay you might never leave.
