I'll seek
Shelter in the desert
In the hot air balloon weather
Though it's no good for me

It's these
Abnormal Septembers
That I dare to remember
Back before we could speak

We've manufactured closeness
To make it out of this mess

I know
I've been less than pleasant
But it doesn't really make sense
To mask what I think

Please stop
Trying to control me
This is getting very boring
And I want to be free

The days are getting shorter
And I am growing colder
We are very tired
But that can wait
That can wait

They can never tell
That it's all going to hell
No they can never tell
That it's all going to hell
