lyrics

He stands on his legs like an oversized bee
Trying to get off the ground
But he's far too heavy to flee
How many hours in a room all alone
He use to be so happy
Now he can't make anywhere home

And photo albums line the tables they use to eat upon

The bathroom cupboard holds an item or two
She forgot to collect it's been months
But they don't move
Should've said something
When you looked her in the eye
Before the wind had changed for the winter time

She left something messy in the kitchen there
Now it's going rotten an polluting the air

He use to have something of a permanent smile
Well it still sits there on his face
But his eyes are in denial
And swimming in his head are social meeting times
Information dates and numbers
Fill the gaps that someone left behind

His heart dries slowly on the beaten line
I couldn't be the one to save him but eventually he'll find
That everyone is happy when they reach the other side
