lyrics

These roads have my words engraved on every cracking inch
I know the subtle changes in the leaves
every silent winter I am screaming out your name
sometimes a curse, sometimes in reverie

I am on the border but I always stay inside
Drive out of town each day but I keep coming back at night
And the harder that I try the more your name is on my lips
Oh, Wisconsin, why'd it have to come to this?
Oh, Wisconsin, why'd it have to come to this?

At the bottoms of your lakes a thousand skeletons reside
but we can overlook them if we try
Every goddamn winter I ask why I'm still around
Must be something in the way you capture spring

And I swore that I'd try my hardest
try my hardest for you
and I swore that I'd try my hardest
try my hardest for you

I am on the border but I always stay inside
Drive out of town each day but I keep coming back at night
And the harder that I try the more your name is on my lips
Oh, Wisconsin, why'd it have to come to this?
Oh, Wisconsin, why'd it have to come to this?
