You’ve got an in-law apartment
in the mother of all states.
Right back where you started;
maybe this is what it takes.

You’ve got crippling debt,
reason to be upset,
and the right to believe that order
is just around the corner

Strange how city life beat you down:
estranged, but in range, in the ex-urbs.
There’s nothing for it now
except to be near enough ears to get heard

But I am always here to listen,
if that’s not been clear through omission.
I am, by my own admission,
terrible at telling you that
I am always here to listen
if that’s not been clear through omission
I am, by my own admission,
terrible at this shit.

All of us must suffer falls
coming out parties suck
debutante balls
matriculate like mine-bound canaries
feel older daily and wiser rarely

Oh, Old Dominion
