lyrics

Remember when you ran outside, looking for somewhere to hide? Darkest clouds took up the sky, air got hot and began to cry. Footprints in melting snow, lost your shoes long time ago. Mom went out for another pair, when she got back Dad wasn't there.

Headlights in the driveway, headlights in the driveway.
Always on an on display, asking you 'come out and play.'
Headlights in the driveway, headlights in the driveway.
Approaching here from far away,
headlight hands take me away.

Frostbite made your feet turn black, running like a running back into bushes with the ghost, impersonating comatose. Hide and seek and never found - ancestors buried underground. Snowflakes landing on your mouth, never gonna let them out.

Dandelion, you gave up trying. Put your petals in the leaves, gave your pollen to the bees. Everything you used to do, people have died from. Everything you try to do, you are denied from.

headlight hands

Mother tried to keep you close to save you from the overdose. Father tried to kick you out to show you what life's all about. Sister tried to keep you near, worried that you'd disappear. Brother tried to make it hard - threw your toys into the yard.
