i said i'm fallin apart love
just turn the stove up
it is too cold in here
and the sleeves of my sweater
are worn out
the gas has been turned off
since the bills got put in my name
cause dad has been
fallin apart from
the moment he got home
from the war out in the streets
he was walkin to the beat
of a burn out
until mom kicked him out
but she's one foot inside the grave now
how irony has taken it's
toll now
just get yourself clean
so the baby in the bedroom
can realize the beauty of peace
