Oh, woe why do you stay
And make me feel this awful way?
You filled my heart with your solemn tune
And an endless burning bluish hue

It's been a basement of a year
And all I want's for you to disappear

But oh, woe you caught my eye
I thought that I'd give you a try
But you're nothing like the way you looked
In all those famous songs and books

And now I see how you snuff the light
And kill the ones who hold you inside

And I can feel you grow in me like a forest of grief
It's so confounding trying to cut you down
Trying to find a place to begin

Oh, woe please hear this plea
To walk away and leave me be
I've weathered more than I can take
Of your ever-present lonely ache

It's been a basement of a year
And all I want's for you to disappear

It's been a basement of a year
And all I want's for you to disappear
All I want's for you to disappear
