Lake Effect

This song is by Dirty on Purpose and appears on the album Hallelujah Sirens (2006).

The lake effect kept us in bed
The lake effect left us with cigarette sores
Bruises and scars up my back and arms
And coughs that don't quit

Better to go far away
Better to back up your threats than stay
Better to go while the goin's okay
You wanted to be far away
You see it
You see it

The microphone caught every sigh
The microphone caught every comment you made
It caught every cry from the depths of your dreams
And it caught some from me

Better to go far away
Better to back up your threats than stay
Better to go while the goin's okay
You wanted to be far away
You see it
You see it

The branches were naked and wet
The deer in the front yard was eating my trash
Long-legged and cleared-eyed and livin' on scraps
As skinny as us

The lake effect kept us in bed
The lake effect left us with cigarette sores
Bruises and scars up my back and arms
And coughs that don't quit

Better to go far away
Better to back up your threats than stay
Better to go while the goin's okay
You wanted to be far away
You see it
You see it
