Ohio - This Is a Long Drive for Someone With Nothing to Think About

Took a bus straight to Baltimore
on the way he took a nap
dropped off a note that said,
"I'm giving this note back."
P.S. There's alot goin' on underneath there's
roots, the pipes and there's drainage leaks.
You're on
You're wrong
Truly sorry, I see clearly
Calmly crashing I pace faster than anyone
Hinges rusting, they swing louder than anything
Truly lonely this place is flatter than it seems
I'm upset and I leave the doors open wide.
Our hearts are used up, cracked and dry
Pulled the scabs off of regrets
we haven't learned to eat out conscience yet.
Truly sorry, I see clearly
Hardy hoping I spend it all on game machines
Calmly crashing I pace and I figure out again.
One hand clapping
Awake, but napping
Rows of lights to illuminate lines.
Why don't they turn them off and let us see night

Drove crazed groomin' my lies
You can't look in on one way eyes
