what was i saying?  the brain          
     Did I ever tell you
gets twisted and you can't find        
     about when we stole
your way out because you're angry      
     that old '57 Dodge from
and                                    
     Clint Smith's dad?
frustrated with everything that keeps  
     He owned the Dodge
                                       
     dealership and we
I feel like I've outlived              
     thought that
My usefulness
I feel like
I feel like just
I don't believe in ending your own
I feel like just

What's... what was I saying?
