lyrics

Sittin' on the frontporch of a two-story home
Wonderin' why you had to go?
Davy Crocket's jungle, this time of year
Reminds me of how we dug up all of our fears
Put me up on your horse again
So I can try to remember when
Pictures were filled with smiles
On our fridges, not locked in files
Well he's runnin' to his gave, from the woman he loves
I was just a little kid, wonderin' where my grandfather was
They used to lock me in the dark
But I made friends with the lambs and the sharks
Oh mama, mama, can't you see?
I'm comin' home with a back full of teeth
Got myself a tiny, shiny bumblebee
Buzz, buzz, buzz in my heart, until I'm free
Cuz I got a world to grasp
And when I fall, I'll be sure to laugh
Well he's runnin' to his grave, from the woman he loves
I was just a little kid, wonderin' where my grandfather was
They used to trap me with no light
Chained to porcelain, away from the fight
Just like a calf taken from his home
Lock me in a cage of my own piss and moan
Then I will walk out fine
As cool as plastic fruit, hangin' from the vine
When I talk towards the floor
You're so small you can't hear me anymore
Well he's runnin' to his grave, from the woman he loves
I was just a little kid, wonderin' where my grandfather was
Where did the typewriter go?
Ten-page stories, fantastic and rolled
Voices never again, to be found
Davy's jungle has burnt to the ground
Why did you leave me so fast?
So quick I had to fill up, the holes in my past
Well I never been to the south
Will you die there, with your heart in your mouth?
