Friendly Fire
Etc. 2xLP/CD, Dear You 2xLP/CD (2004 Blackball reissue)

Walked beyond the fence,
played outside our yard.
You took it hard.
Through a one-way door
hinged high on doubt.
No ins, no outs.

I like my clothes.
Don't want to grow.
I'll wait around
'til you say go.

The lights were off
when I got home.
Black room, blue phone.
Don't I know your name?
Weren't we almost friends?
Guess that depends.

Take some benefit
with all your doubt.
If this is principle,
I'm dropping out.

You demonize
so you don't look so bad.
You wouldn't take
what you couldn't have.
My back is warm
with your friendly fire.
I know you're trying.
Could you please aim it higher?

So alone I wrote,
I wrote this will.
I will decline.
This fish ain't big.
This pond is small.
So small of mind.

I like my clothes.
Don't want to grow.
I'll wait around
'til you say go.

You demonize
so you don't look so bad.
You wouldn't take
what you couldn't have.
My back is warm
with your friendly fire.
I know you're trying.
Could you please aim it higher?



Note: In early live versions from 1994, the chorus ends with the following: "My back is warm with your friendly fire. Aim it higher." Additionally, there's an extra chorus in the end, which is comprised of these words: "Got no regrets, I regret to say. I wonder why you can't relate. Now you smile. It's too late. We had our day."
