lyrics

He was blowing dust on the rest of us
the day the season came without hope for rain.
I was stuck in the car with no one to talk to, to talk to.
It was getting real hard for me to see through, to see through
your impossible code, and your maps and legends keeping
your cards so close from your very friends.

So won’t you walk walk with me to the baseball diamond?
I was pushing a thought to the back of my mind.
So won’t you escort the girl to the baseball diamond?
You can tell her some bullshit childhood story
of how your sensitive nature made you a saint,
so she’ll lift up her shirt without making complaint.
’Cause that’s all you’re after in the end
when you walk walk with me to the baseball diamond.

Made a carbon copy of the moment,
so I fished it around inside my head.
Stuck a bookmark inside that sentiment;
put it on the windowsill beside the bed.
So it’ll be there when I want it,
and it can be ignored when I don’t.

So won’t you walk walk with me to the baseball diamond?
I was pushing a thought to the back of my mind.
So won’t you escort the girl to the baseball diamond?
You can tell her some bullshit childhood anecdote
of how your sensitive nature made you a saint,
so she’ll lift up her shirt without making complaint.
’Cause that’s all you’re after in the end
when you walk walk with me to the baseball diamond.
That’s all you’re after in the end
when you walk walk with me to the baseball diamond.

Baseball diamond. Baseball diamond. Baseball diamond.
