the garden blooms over the tall fences
the grass is greener on my side
the saddest poems that made you teary-eyed, were filled with lies

parade the spider out of every attic
stamp out your final cigarette
you thought the blues were gonna get you somewhere, but the haven't yet

it's rained enough, and I need the sun

do not let me go

cut the lock on every tiger cage
a rollerskating grizzly bear
well everybody's got a broken heart, and no one cares

stop searching for some leviathan
hidden in the murky deep
you have to choose to either let him go, or let him be

it's rained enough, and I need the sun

do not let me go
