lyrics

When I bail there’ll be nothing
No more screaming or smacking
No more throwing of dishes or cuss words
No furniture, TVs, no windows to break

You can go back to drawing
Painting pictures of role model families
Leave the black and blue colors on the palette
You know there’ll be plenty of time
You know when I bail there’ll be calmness
There’ll be nothing but calmness

You can sell all my books and my records
There’s a box in the corner of the attic with old punk rock singles
They’re gotta be worth something

You can travel the continent
Think I won't need the car
You can finally visit Berlin, Paris, London, Belgrade, Rome
And when you return there’ll be calmness
There’ll be godawful calmness

But for now I’ll just stay here
There’s no saviour for me anywhere
No oasis of solace
And like hell there’ll be calmness

When I bail there’ll be nothing
No devices unbroken
No damn phone cords untorn
No damn door in its hinges
When I leave there’ll be armageddon
But when I’m gone there’ll be calmness
There’ll be godawful calmness

But for now I’ll just stay here
There’s no saviour for me anywhere
No oasis of solace
And like hell there’ll be calmness
