lyrics

Me and my friend Robert
I’ve known since I was four.
Used to turn chairs and blankets into forts.
Me and my friend Robert
Playing at the park.
Jumping off the swings
Falling in the Bark

Roberts now a homeless man
Roberts still my friend.
Roberts chilled with Ice again.
Robert still pretends.

Me and my friend Robert
used to pretend
that our fathers weren't angry and our mothers weren't on meth.
Oh my best friend Robert
He has left us all behind.
I mourn for his death
even though he's still alive.

Roberts now a homeless man
Roberts still my friend.
Roberts chilled with Ice again.
Robert still pretends.
















Plastic Grass
Walk along the plastic grass
No need to mow my lawn.
Walk along the plastic grass
All the flowers are gone.

No more roots, no more roots
to hold me down
Just routine, just routine
Around and around.

I bought my joy,
But couldn't afford the time.
I worked all my life,
Just to lose my mind.
