lyrics

Dad, was it sad?
it was time to go away
last lunch at the Chinese buffet

because I know I cried soon as you were out of sight
driving in my car, the city never seemed so far
from where my feelings are

I spent my time alone - I wouldn't pick up the phone
and I fell off the map, yeah I was gone like that
looked out for number one, and like a setting sun
in the polluted city sky, where the colors glow most bright,
I fade forever on the skyline

now I sit in protection, like a womb
a beam of light in the dark of the projection room
watch silent films of ourselves, take the old books off the shelves
recalling a past life when I felt more like myself

my friend Joe says "kill the past" - I wish it worked like that
I'd have it buried out back, because to endure one must last
but we're not built to last, but to spill and to stain instead
to collect dust, to turn to rust that clings to those that lie ahead

Kurt, did it hurt?
things don't always go as planned, so you got in your sedan
and that's about the last I heard

but I know you'll be ok, in San Francisco or Green Bay
yeah I know you've been alright, through the darkness and the light
in the polluted city sky, where the colors glow most bright
yeah, we've had some good times, and I'm glad
big brother I never had
