about

When my grandfather got dementia, I watched him struggle to operate his brain like it was a busted toy. It frustrated him and absolutely destroyed me.
-Tom

lyrics

Stop, I know who you are, I’ve seen you before
Do you know my son? He’s at war
Back when I was your age, the sky was a stage
Now all the giant birds are circling

Because I'm a faulty bag of thoughts and mostly asleep
I'm a used car salesman, it's 1980
I'm a cold walk up a river bed, I’m in and out of my own head
I'm a young man in a skeleton and mostly asleep

Shut the window again, the weather is grim
And the cold will ache my bones
Leave the radio on, so I can believe
Your mother might appear to sing along

Because I'm a faulty bag of thoughts and mostly asleep
I'm a used car salesman, it's 1980
I'm a cold walk up a river bed, I’m in and out of my own head
I'm a young man in a skeleton and mostly asleep

The sickness of age cuts lines in my face
Just payment for time I’ve borrowed
The years all but fade, erasing the tape
And leaving a bed of sorrow
