Out by the tracks where the sunflowers grow high and fine
Three sets of tracks: Steve and Rochelle's and the last one's mine
Guy with a hat down in the weeds in a carboard box
Secrets to keep, records to seal up
Kittens weighed down with rocks.
There was a little toolshed where he made us suffer

Back at the school everyone looks like the ememy
And we couldn't sleep and I had the voices inside of me
Steve and Rochelle and me down the well all semester long
Back to the tracks to try and make peace 
But the box was gone, was gone
There was a little toolshed where the sad man made us suffer
