I wrote it down in a book
And I buried it
I looked
Twenty feet underground
Where I’m hiding now
Some things aren’t worth finding out
For yourself, for your health
Or for anyone else’s
I can’t help it
I needed proof of progress
I reached my roof of knowledge
And to my dull amazement
I’m still beneath your basement
I hear the floorboards creaking
I hear the voices speaking
I see the curtains creasing
Sharply and all your secrets
Spill out like bottled water
Find out when it gets hotter
Wait there for half an hour
I watched the whole pot boil

Pacing around your apartment
Tasting your own disappointment
One name inside a black binder
Serves as a constant reminder
Don’t you come back ‘til you find her
(Don’t you come back)

They have that tasty aroma
Hold me and tell me it’s over
I see them drinking lake water
Looking for all their lost daughters
Don’t you know I couldn’t find her
(Don’t you know)

What would I know?
What would I know, now?
