​Exposition

This song is by Jeremy Larson and appears on the album Salvation Club (2008).

I'll trade you my last cigarette
If you trade me what is left of all their dignity.

Maybe they will feel a little better
If we say that we are even now.
But they still are thieves

It's only you and me against
The fattened calf of atrophy today.

Yeah it's only you and me against
The ones who so ungracefully have aged.

Father, step in closer,
Put your arm around her shoulder.
Cover them colorful blues.

Keep the children smiling
Can you make it look exciting?
Just force it if they still refuse.

It's a shame that we can't follow them to hell
And tuck them in and softly say goodnight.

But I'm content to shout it from above
So you can send my love to all of your
Old friends.

So here's to you and me
And here's to dignity and wishing them the best

So cheers to you and me
And here's to empathy from my last cigarette

Come and look at father
With your eyes a little softer
Now, focus and focus some more.

If you let me fix the lighting,
I can make it feel inviting
To the bitter and angry in all.

Father, step in closer,
Put your arm around her shoulder
All covered in bruises myself.

And the fight is nearly over
Just a little more exposure.
It's perfect for everyone else.
