You're looking at foreclosure
And doing time
And it don't sound good this time
And the wife that made your life Hell

All the time you were telling me
You were fine
Ah, Silly man

So I got your dog
How is that?
I made it nice, I wrote a check
You cut the weeds back on my drive
Cause you're a good guy
Deep down inside
What makes a boy like you go bad
What makes a man so lonely and sad
That he'd poison all he knows
And in one year, just let it go?

And all that time you were telling me
You were fine
Ah Silly man, silly boy

Yeah, it's been you and me on this frontier
Trying not to be suburban pioneers
Fighting off the pavers
And the associations
And the covenants against the trailers
I remember how we used to laugh
At all those rotten men in "camo" drag
With their advantage and their guns
Up the deer stand shooting up a storm

And all the time
You were telling me all those lies
Ah silly man, I'm just a silly girl

There was a time
We could hibernate like bears
But we finally come up for air
And everything's all marked and cleared
Survey flags flying everywhere

Once you told me what
You know, what I'll miss the most
Is just being the only ones
With our dirt and our dead ends
And no one to turn us in

Once you told me what
You know, what I'll miss the most
Is just being the only ones
With our dirt and our dead ends
