lyrics

It just seems rude, left to myself
This box of rust and bits of you
These spaces that are left, bowing to time and its theft
It just seems rude, oh me and you

Some simple odds, a tease and a quip
But now the dealer shifts all the house rules
And our wrists have all gone limp, and his card he refuses to flip
It just seems rude, oh me and you

Are there ears in the aether
Can you hear this short refrain?
A desperate scamble of words
Much less than I know you deserve
It just seems rude, oh me and you

And so it goes, or so it’s gone
This carousel won’t be bothered
Though it sometimes feels it’s done, but in truth it goes on and on
it just seems rude, oh me and you

Are there ears in the aether
Can you hear this short refrain?
A desperate scamble of words
Much less than I know you deserve
It just seems rude, oh me and you
