lyrics

You have a way of phrasing
That lures me in
With false questions your baiting
Fools me again
And I swallow hook line and paragraph
Your letters so sweet
And wait for the day
When you will come back to me

But my past and my future
Are equally grim
The water is rising
And I can't conjugate swim

And you say that you want me around
But I know that you want me subdued
And you only love me
In the subjunctive mood

You throw around words with abandon
And it twists me inside
Your semantics too often seem random
I wonder what you're trying to hide
And I wait by the door like a dog
And hope you return
But you've got it down to a science
And I never learn

And my past and my present
Are equally bleak
The water is rising
And my little boat's sprung a leak

And you say that you want me around
But I know that you want me subdued
And you only love me
In the subjunctive mood

Yeah my past is imperfect
And my future looks worse
But I just don't have the words
To break the hold of this curse

And you say that you want me around
And although you want me subdued
I'll only leave you
In the subjunctive mood

And you say that you want me around
But I know that you want me subdued
And you only love me
In the subjunctive mood
