Self Defense Family – Somerton lyrics
Church lets wino sleep
Never asks him to leave
Plants a tent; calls it home
He uses pews to hang clothes

Rescue dog you can't train
Although you saved him from rain
Rescue dog still lies
And plays loose with your life
Rescue dog begs and comes
Slips his collar and runs

A neighbor you let in
And you lend him your things
He quotes Bible verse
Absconds with your purse

A treaty you sign
And trust that it binds
On ink it holds birch
Though no man to his word

I was all that was left
I wanted to hide
But there's no shelter
When thoughts envelop

What a time for me
I did whatever I pleased
Write the song to be sad
Or get sad to write the song

Let the cat in the bed
Or make him sleep in the barn
Bad ideas indulged
He left bones and skulls
Future fucks all of us
Hell's too much involved

Who puts a hand out to me
Gently pulls on a string
I'd break any trust
I can ruin anything
