Lyrics

I'm southbound
I had a bad day
I'll fade away
Underneath the apple tree
Move along, there's nothing to see
I'm only here in theory
You made your last mistake
The last straw you will ever break
In the apple grove
You've decayed, you've lost your way
And I'm skipping out
Absent without leaving
I'm only dead in theory
But I'm still breathing
Bleeding
I'm only here in theory

Since I found out
What you're all about
I've been banging this drum
In the library room
My feelings won't spill
So you'll never find out
I'm leaving
I'm all clapped out
In the apple grove

I'm southbound
I'm heading for another town
I'm running round and round
Absent without leaving
I'm still breathing
Staying on as a thorn in your side
I'm banging this drum
I'm banging my head
On your glass ceiling
I told you I'm leaving
My feelings won't show
So you'll never know
I'm leaving
And the apple grove
Is where I'll rove

I'm southbound
I had a bad day
And now I fade away
Underneath the apple tree
Move along, there's nothing to see
And I'm skipping out
I'm southbound
