Emo Phillips' Revenge

from by Loner Chic



I wrote some songs—I turn the tape deck on
and I strum away my pain for everyone

I found a girl—she keeps me sane
and although I still hate my body I don’t have to hate my brain

and it’s all for you! it’s all for you!

Her veil is solid black— She had a heart attack
when her father died
And her sister kept the younger kids inside

You can try to run— I guess they tried to hide
but Death comes equal to everyone
an alcoholic father or his youngest son
You can’t choose
Because your life’s defined by what you can’t undo

and it’s all for you! it’s all for you!
and it’s all—all— for you
It’s all for whoever you’re singing this to

And in the innocent days when you sat in the pew
waiting for the dark voice of nothing to scream back at you
“kid I know that you want to be included too”

and in those childhood years when you sat on the bed
with a guitar in your hand and a girl in your head
Oh— you should have known you were better off back then

But everybody leaves, and every song must have an end
