lyrics

When I met you, you’d come from Lithuania -
A small farming town outside of Pittsburgh, PA
The climate had risen to a state of global meltdown
But your cool, calm collusion had me wanting to stay

It was a lonely time for all of us, you see

Because of my old mania
I tried to fit the whole world in the palm of my hand
I was grasping at straws, I didn’t know how I’d reach them
I fought for space but didn’t know where I’d stand

It was a lonely time for all of us, you see
It was a lonely time for all of us

When we first met, you said your name was Alessandra
You said that it was Greek and meant “defender of men”
We built a treehouse with the bones of your elders
And we lined the mattress with the stuff of way back when

And we would stand amongst the vegetables outside

As we’d repeat the mantra
“The future is upon us, so let nothing be saved”
We turned your kitchen into a makeshift mausoleum
And we swapped the contents of your basement for a grave

And we would stand amongst the vegetables outside
And we would stand amongst the vegetables

These days I wear a slightly more crooked smile

When I met you, you’d come from Lithuania
A European country outside of Pittsburgh, PA
The concrete was hot and the Baltic states were warring
But your pristine persistence had me melting away

These days I wear a slightly more crooked smile
