Ohio

good night and good luck from ohio

i hope all the weather’s better down south

cause it’s hot then it’s cold

it’s stifling then frozen ohio

and i never seem to wear the right kind of clothes

so if you were here i’d offer you my coat

cause jacket or sweater no matter the weather

is comforting to most

just a little way to get you

to look up

and look out from ohio

throw you far far far from the state that you're in

cause the caustic and bold they’ll throw out your soul

if we’ve got em

and they’ll hide in your bedsheets they'll wait

to catch you alone

but i’m coming home

and if you were here

i’d offer you my coat

cause jacket or sweater no matter the weather

is comforting to most

though what ails you inside is pathologized

in my digital copy of the dsm-v

it’s amazing baby you're still alive

but you’ve gotten much too good

at saying your goodbyes

so if you were here i’d offer you my coat

but jacket or sweater it won’t make it better

just a tip of the cap i suppose

to the tides that keep on tugging you

back forth to and fro
