Down a two-lane highway staged deep in the trees

past coffee-colored streams things are not as they seem

Iím not going back there

Iíve unpacked

 

The limbs of pine barrens strangle the heavens

angels wait for a fire in order to survive

Iím not going back there

Iíve unpacked

 

Madness encircles consumes all my windows

little abuses are wrapped up great big excuses

Iím not going back there

Iíve unpacked

 

My days were all numbered slashed on the wall

six-thousand-two hundred I counted them all

Iím not going back there

Iíve unpacked

 

Madness encircles consumes all the windows

little abuses are wrapped up great big excuses

Iím not going back there

Iíve unpacked

 

I promise to listen and to play nice

I wonít shove, kick or push

I wonít spit, scream or bite

I will play by the rules

join in all the games

just donít send me back

where the days are all the same

 

Where madness encircles consumes all the windows

and the colors of rainbows only appear

in the shades of little pills that I swallow with tears

 

Because the little abuses that are wrapped up with bows

are just great big excuses that every one knows

and Iím not going back there

Iíve unpacked
