    The Cold (Patronizing)

    I’m fixin to leave now, planned it out before
    Drew that damn map and stuck it to the door,
    It’s there to remind me why I left from the start
    Blowin’ newspapers and flipped shopping carts

    Color left along with the warmth
    Of meeting familiar faces and ones that weren’t
    Well what the hell did you expect
    When you left me out in the cold ?
    That I’d fit right back into things
    Like it was some television show ?

    You know the ones you hated, the ones I loathed.
    You say you know the cold
    You don’t know shit except when to tell me so.

    So tell me so, tell me something more interesting than that
    This has got to be the most boring leave,
    The most dry laugh,
    You say you know the cold ?

    I saw the snow brush out your face
    Frost bite tore up your mouth
    It ate up your legs
    I don’t recognize you no more
    You wouldn’t recognize me either,
    Not that you’d want to anyways
    Not that you would want to.
