American Bones
(M. Spence)

Drunken thumbing through this yearbook, right now I'm pushing 30.
These pictures read like paragraphs and I wish I checked out early.
Been better than a decade since my feet walked these buildings.
They've graduated thousands that will soon be in debt millions.

What happened to these pretty girls; the tight and soft skin models?
They're dying in Elizur's, getting bloated behind bottles.
Could someone tell me there is no meaning here?
Could you tell me where we lost the will to care?
And oh, I don't think I want to know.
Severing...tearing my American bones.

The last time I saw you, I didn’t have shit to say.
You always hated waiting tables but here we are today.
Been better than a decade since we grew and we fell apart.
I've tried so hard to hate you but your eyes still break my heart.

What happened to that little boy; I used to be much better.
I'm dying in Elizur's and I'm trying to forget her.
Could someone tell me there is no meaning here?
Could you tell me where we lost the will to care?
And oh, I don't think I want to know.
Severing...tearing my American bones.

I was walking home and tonight I saw a ghost.
As the cold wind blows and I'm so overexposed.
I feel nothing. I guess I'm just getting old and miserable in a world I can't control.
