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
