lyrics

I Don’t Want To Talk About It

I don’t want to talk about it and you… you don’t want to listen
To the words and descriptions that tell you just what you’ve been missing

So it looks like you fell down again, though you say
That you were pushed down below the surface
To a place where there are no words to use
To describe the abuse you’re so used to getting your way
But you don’t know how you got there
That’s not the point ‘cause this could be anywhere

And I don’t want to talk about it and you… you don’t want to listen
To the lines and inscriptions that tell you just what you’ve been missing

So it looks like you found me again, though you say
That you weren’t looking around in all the windows;
Portals to buildings. Empty walls that house
Words espoused by filtered mouths displaced with eternal grace.
Misplaced. Lost and broken. Left wandering in infinite space.

I don’t want to talk about it and you… you don’t want to listen
To the lies and depictions that tell you just what you’ve been missing

…now we’ve collided again though we say that this wasn’t planned
Or accidental. Some misplaced footprints and meeting incidental
And of no consequence reliant on some remembrance past.
And you disagree, with my assertion that in your life
You’re just a passenger

I don’t want to talk about it and you… you don’t want to listen
To the words and descriptions that tell you just what you’ve been missing
I don’t want to talk about it
