Track Name: The Man Downstairs
i will leave the leaves in piles out in the front yard
i will make a fire out back for all the boys
i will pick your heart apart until you love me
as you try your best to talk through all the noise …

‘cuz the man downstairs, he’s shouting from the table
she refused to take what they’ve prescribed
and i dream of dragons sunning in the courtyard
as we storm the castles with nothing to find…

and we climb up stairs, to our lover’s beds, as they wait for us
and they’re half asleep in the neon heat of the room
and we may not understand what they’re going through
it’s true …

she thinks it’s sad when it’s all been said there’s nothing
but yourself and the things that you believe
and the man downstairs, his head in his hands, he’s sighing
as we watch the children fall into the leaves

and we climb down stairs to our cheap sedans as they call for us
don’t go, don’t leave, don’t cry, don’t make a scene
and i’m standing there, between child and man, with only love for you
it’s true …

it’s true…
