lyrics

MONDAY
by Ray Rodgers
I've got Monday torn and discarded
and dropped outside the door.
There's just this trail of loose debris
that's been drug across the floor.

I can't be holding on to loves inventions.
I can't be holding on to methods of this lie.
I've got Monday torn and discarded.

There's nothing you might want here.
There's nothing you might need.
It's all been burned or thrown away.
You may as well just leave.

I’ve got Monday bound and gathered
with tape and string and glue.
There's just these crumbs that still lie around.
Soon, I’ll have to sweep those too.

I can’t be holding on to lost expectations.
I can’t be holding on to fruitless bits of rind.
I’ve got Monday bound and gathered
and almost out of mind.

I’ve got Monday boxed and ready
and dropped out by the curb.
There's nothing special been set aside
from all that bump and skin and word.

I can’t be holding on to lost intentions.
I can’t be making room for no one out of line.
I’ve got Monday boxed and ready.

There's nothing you might want here.
There's nothing you might need.
It's all been burned or thrown away.
You may as well just leave.
