lyrics

hey mom, got a problem on the other line. Yeah, mom, I'm doing fine.
Someone's waiting. I'm hesitating. Call you back when everything's all right

"Everything's okay. Everything's fine," you said when we woke up.
Clay chips on the table. Wet glass on the floor. Everything's okay.

I got a problem with last night.
I got a problem with last night.
I got a problem with your suicide attempts and the way they break my skin.
It's sinking in.

Do you remember, mom, that June through September when I tasted gravel. I tasted gravel. And Jamie had to sneak out in the night from the man with the double tall, double wide trailer and such bad intentions? Hey, I got a call on the other line...

Now you got tears
Now you're so sorry
You broke your own heart, babe.
But it's my teeth on the table
It's my hands on the floor
Everything's okay.

I got a problem with last night.
I got a problem with last night.
I got a problem with your suicide attempts and the way they break my skin.
It's sinking in.

Gotta move on, move on, before you try to prove one more point with your joints up in the air
and my hair against the wall. Gotta take this call 'cause tomorrow I'm gone to any other hell but this one.

Hey, mom, hey. Got on a plane. Headed out to L.A. Be back home in December. Tell the kids I miss them. Hope you're having a good day.
