​The Unwanted Things

This song is by Ted Leo and the Pharmacists and appears on the album Living with the Living (2007).

Crying for the hungry friends and you're crying for the struggling friends
And I'm crying over you
Crying over a mother's debt and now you're crying over some other's head
While I'm crying over you

You're working so hard to guard against the weather
You'd shelter the world if you could
But remember we swore that we'd stop each other never?
From doing what we've got to, well, it's still understood

And so you're crying for the haunted things and you're crying for the unwanted things
And I'm crying over you
Crying 'cause somebody cries and you're crying 'cause everybody dies
And I'm crying over you

I see you working so hard to be a part of something better
It's not some big thing, it's just what you do
But remember the yard when we gardened together?
I can't think of anything better than you

Now I know it's late and
I know you're trying
But your time I wouldn't take
And I'd never stop you crying

You're crying for the living things and you're crying for forgiven things
While I'm crying over you
And now you're crying for depriving things and you're crying for the surviving things
And I'm crying over you

Now you know my ways and you
You know that I'm
Also set ablaze
By that same fire that makes you cry

And so I'm crying for the war and dread and I'm crying 'cause there's more ahead
And I'm crying over you
I'll go on crying for our animal friends and I'll be crying 'til their suffering ends
While I'm crying, crying over you

Crying over you
