A Lick Of Paint

I know you’re listening
I know you’re there
I’ll cut the dick act
Pull up a chair

We get listless
And worn with age
I can see it now
There’s crack in the paint

There’s no shame in
Shutting down
But we could say more
And think aloud

It wasn’t you
It didn’t break
But we could use
a lick of paint

Remember Idaho
with nothing to do?
It can get like that
Sometimes it should

There’s medications
We can take
But they kill our judgement
And strip the paint

There is time
So take some rest
Don’t worry too much
It can be repaired

It could be me
Who’s to blame
I think I need
A lick of paint
