memory - Lyrics

lying in bed, I find an egg
I hold it to the light and see its insides
they're still there somehow beneath a
pale shell that should've been broken by now
things like you don't last too long
look at what the arborists have done
I've got no limbs, I cannot hold a thing
I wish you could've seen me back when I was strong
This tree is no place for an egg to find it's home (noplace like this)
things like you don't last too long

far away I climb a hill
make my way up a cement tower
where bad kids in uniform
smoke cigarettes and write curse words
you ask me to write to you
instead I sing this song
but not loud enough to makes its way
across an ocean or a field
you write
but not fast enough
to catch me
before I come home
