lyrics

You would deny
the beating hearts of these put-together boys,
but they worked so hard
to not have to work in the lumber yard.

There's a generation of patchwork children
that taught us a little about building
fountains from dirty water and our own sons and daughters.

You would unfurl
the ligaments of these put-together girls,
who never offered their kids finished worlds
but taught them how to build their own from nothing.

There's a generation of patchwork children
that taught us a little about building
fountains from dirty water and our own sons and daughters.

Sorry we were never around on the weekend,
you would worship the dead with all your friends,
getting high to your old man's record collection, saying
"Music was never this good again."
But we've got that patchwork sense of self,
you won't find us on your father's shelf.
We've got that patchwork state of mind,
if you can't find us now, one day you'll find.

You can find our heads upon your shelf,
you can find our hands upon your shelf,
you can find our hearts upon your shelf.
