Dead Fish On The Banks by Goodnight Loving

how do you make something unknown again

when it’s burned into your heart?

into the woods you run with your friends

collecting precious stones

when you get home you realize

that it’s a gravel you don’t care

cemetery trails

when you’re a kid

scare you to death but you go anyway

sneak out of the house

nobody’s watching you.

cemetery trails.

down by the river you plug your nose

theres a dead fish on the banks.

you poke it with sticks till guilt creeps on in

ruins the rest of your day.

well how can something live and die without ever feeling afraid?

cemetery trails

when you’re a kid

scare you to death

but you go anyway

sneak out of the house

nobody’s watching you.

well i just won’t be afraid

now it’s getting dark and you want to go home

but you never admit it to yourself

your mom asked you what you did today

you just scowl and say nothing.

well how can something live and die without ever feeling afraid?

cemetery trails

when you’re a kid

scare you to death

but you go anyway

sneak out of the house

nobody’s watching you.

cemetery trails.

well i just won’t be afraid
