I ought to leave
Enough hot water
For your morning bath
That I'd not thought I

Hate to hear you talk that way
But I can't bring myself to say I'm sorry
The past is always
Knocking incessant
Trying to break through
Into the present
We have to work to keep it out
And I won't be the first to shout
It's over
I used to want to plant bombs
