Way before I knew what it’d mean for you,
The minotaur & the girl
[Were] both hiding from the world

From Mammoth to Chauvet,
It’s kind of hard to say
Just who fucked up the walls –

I think they just wanted to talk.

So when I’m freezing up,
Am I not saying enough?
Don’t go out today.
I’m dancing for the rain
And trying to keep an open mind.

Honey, why are you crying?
We’re barely out of time.
Which red wine hit the floor?
Which grape is our meteor?

I still don’t hate my boss,
But on April 1st, he laid me off,
Scatterbrained & tall.

I later heard his family fell apart.

Maybe he just wanted to talk?

So, who are we fooling now?
Another cave for going ‘round & ‘round.
Sooner or later, high
They’ll hang an exit sign
Somewhere outside our chalk outlines.
