lyrics

Demoing down the old salt mounds.
Instruction will kill you real soon now.
Getting religious, it’s a brand new behavior.
So what changed from when you weren’t with her?

I’ll bet he crowds me ’til I die.
I’ll bet he’s a thistle in your eye.
I’ll bet he’s around and never not.
He’s the one little thing that I forgot.

Is it harder to like things when they’re here?
Is it more difficult to see them when they’re near?
You’re digging your nails in my hands and my wrists,
like the spurs.
So what changed from when you weren’t with her?

I’ll bet he crowds me ’til I die.
I’ll bet he’s a thistle in your eye.
I’ll bet he’s around and never not.
The one little thing that I forgot.

Some possible guard for your comfortable cave
was hinting to you that I was running away.
And some dandy kid knew not to dress to deter.
So what changed from when you weren’t with her?

I’ll bet he crowds me ’til I die.
I’ll bet he’s a thistle in your eye.
I’ll bet he’s around and never not.
The one little thing that I forgot.

He’s a thistle. He’s a thistle. He’s a thistle.
He’s a thistle. He’s a thistle.
