The girl in the cubicle next to mine
Looks like I imagine my daughter
The girl in the bed and the curve in her spine
As the days get shorter and shorter

I wanted the house mess
Build a fort from the cushions

I read to remove and I read to resist
And I read turned to stone in the kitchen
I used to tell stories right back to the books
But these days they don't seem to listen

Did they go blind or me?

Where is the madness you promised me?
Is this what I asked you to do for me?
I needed a job and a place to be
My parents no longer care for me

I linger too long in the cube next to mine
And you smile like you know what I'm doing
I say not tonight and you say not tonight
And you smile like you know what I'm doing

Did you go blind or me?

This is the best you can do for me
I thought you would make it OK to be
The thing that I never expected to be
The thing that they always expected of me

Would you hurt yourself a little just for old times' sake
Or throw all your clothes on the fire
