“Ripchord” Rilo Kiley

Pull the ripchord
The ship has lost its sail
Your momma’s got a new man
Your daddy always fails
And you’re eaten again, at them
Because nobody loves you

And even fancy things
Have finally lost their charm
Wine and diamond rings
That never get you anymore
You’re sleeping again, alone
Because nobody loves you

They should have seen you
Should have known you
Should have known
What it was like to be you

So come on, kid
Look at what you did
I don’t know if you meant it
But you did yourself in
And I was even having a good day
When I found out we’d lost you

She said it was in
The singing and the strumming
Oh man, I even saw it coming
