lyrics

Harriet lies and fakes a cough
She's turned her conscience off and slept in
A home. That she calls home sweet home
It's where she hangs her hat and heartache
brings her pain. The echoes ring of a long sigh
Of disbelief of tell-tall grief the exhaled air brings no relief
And heavy medals line her walls
Expectation falls into a different category.

The disappointment calls her name. It's shared her deepest shame
Her deepest fear of bing solo, she can't hear herself think
Of grabbing her last drink, it'll be her last breath
Inhaled into lungs that never knew how to
Truly take in the atmosphere.

I'm sure we need you here.
I'm sure we need you here.
You think you're only notching someone's belt and they've never felt
The sharpened end of their pretend advocacy.
