lyrics

Won't someone teach us all the things that we didn't learn in school,
Life is rotten, love can be so cruel
Summer's over

Hush little darling, do what you're told,
You were living in a castle but your room was full of mold,
And your paper umbrella is a boomerang
And your lovesick liver
Will hit your heart,
All the blood and the water
and the blood runs out,

Just to be sure it's real we inspect our own wounds
Stick our fingers in so deep that we can't help but scream
All the tissues, all the bones, and all the years come out
All the blood and the tears like an ocean runs out
And fear like a spear cut deep into your side
All the stars in the sky...
The stars in the sky

Blue blue pebbles and white balloons,
Animal messages in wood paneled rooms
Mountainous caverns, creeks and morning dew,
There were restless heads of yarrow kissed by feverfew
But if nothing really matters,
And we don't know what to do
We get caught between the lines between
Me and you

All the lines between the walls
All the walls between empty rooms
All the rooms between
Me and you

Won't someone teach us all the things that we didn't learn in school
Life is rotten, love can be so cruel
Summer's over,
And so are you.
