Your Jacket Pocket

from by Bats & Battleships

lyrics

This room never felt like home anyway
Boxes piled up in the same space as unpacked

Just like the notes in your jacket pocket
Stuffed and forgotten, to be remembered another day
A wall with frames
A cat crying out in hunger
A single bed that was never removed
A bike with legs was meant to build a home
Instead a cell of circumstance and misread signs

These legs couldn't carry me anymore
The mind weighed down by the things that were never said
They will be just like the notes in your jacket pocket
Stuffed and forgotten, and never seen again

Your jacket pocket has swallowed me whole
