    Lyrics

    the answer came
    like a shot in the back
    while you were running from your lesson
    which might explain
    why years later all you could remember
    was the terror of the question
    plus, you weren't listening
    you were stockpiling canned goods
    making a bomb shelter of our basement
    and i can't believe you let the moral go by
    while you were soaking in the product placement

    where was your conscience?
    where was your consciousness?
    and where did you put all those letters
    that you wrote to yourself
    but could not address?

    i'm a good kisser
    and you're a fast learner
    and that kinda thing could float us
    for a pretty long time
    then one day you'd realize
    you've memorized my phone number
    and you'll call it and find it's a disconnected line
    cuz i got tossed out the window of love's el camino
    and i shattered into a shower of sparks on the curb
    you were smoking me
    weren't you?
    between your yellow fingers
    you just inhaled and exhaled without saying a word

    where was your conscience?
    where was your consciousness?
    and where did you put all those letters
    that you wrote to yourself
    but could not address?

    there's a smorgasbord of unspoken poisons
    a whole childhood of potions
    that are all bottled up
    and so one by one i am dusting off labels
    i am uncorking bottles and filling up cups
    so go ahead and have a taste of your own medicine
    and i'll have a taste of mine
    but first let's toast to the lists
    that we hold in our fists
    of the things that we promise to do
    differently next time

    cuz the answer came like a shot in the back
    while you were running from your lesson
    which might explain
    why years later all you could remember
    was the terror of the question
    plus i'm not listening to you anymore
    my head is too sore and my heart's perforated
    and i'm mired in the marrow of my (well... ain't that) funny bone
    learning how to be alone and devastated
    where was my conscience?
    where was my consciousness?
    and what do i do with all these letters
    that i wrote to myself
    but cannot address?
