[rev. Apr. 21, 2015]

You told me you were coming after five
If I'm alive, after five
I told you it'd be better after eight
When it's too late, after eight

And if you hear a floorboard creak
Be sure that it's not me
My feet won't touch the carpet
Now the world has set me free

If you wanna be there in good time
Get off the line and drink your wine
If you don't think you'll make it, it's okay
Gone tomorrow here today

And if silence is what shocks you
It's just a different kind of noise
It's bad for you, but it's good for me
I didn't have much choice
