Desaparecidos Man And Wife, The Latter (Damaged Goods) Lyrics

Last updated: 08/19/2014 01:51:54 PM

I'm growing out my hair
like it was when I was single
it was longer than I'd known you
I had no money then. I had no worries then at all

such a high standard of living
I just feel like I am dying
I start an argument, but you can barely even talk

there's good reason for your silence
have to take care of some business
so I fix your plate, and I stay out of the way

will you stay like that forever?
right in front of your computer
you'll look up one day, but you won't recognize me

so you want a change
read a letter from a lawyer
want to take me out to dinner
you want to bury me under a mound of shopping bags

like it'd really make a difference
or make up for your disinterest
I'm a bill you pay. I'm a contract you can't break

and it's like I'm under water
or on an endless escalator
I just go up and up, but I don't ever reach the top

and it reads just like the bible
twenty centuries of scandal
yeah, it all depends on how you interpret it

the word is love
the word is loss
the words are damaged goods. that's what I am
a lifetime gets chalked up to an experience, coincidence
we're chained to the events
that's it
