about

i've been wanting to write this song for a while.

Special thanks to James Long, Kiore H, Chell, and Andrew.
And thanks to all my patrons for keeping me going.

lyrics

I've been cleaning out the closets,
'cause it's around that time of year.
Can't be skimping on deposits,
so i've been doing what i can around here.

If you could take me back a decade,
maybe i could have worked this out,
but i can't promise
i wouldn't have made the mess that I'm in now.

Spring cleaning.
How many things are left in here that i've been hiding?
Spring cleaning.
And if it's all wiring,
then who is it that i've been hiding it from?

Skeletons all out for show,
i found 'em not too long ago.
I'd tell you if you know a bone to pick
that won't afflict me none.

But does it matter,
seeing patterns
in the scatter of the carpet clutter.
boxes of maybes, fairly lately, all built up.

So i'm cleaning out the closets.
'cause it's around that time of year.
Can't be skimping on deposits,
so i've been doing what i can around here.

If you could take me back a decade,
maybe i could have worked this out,
but i can't promise
i wouldn't have made the mess that I'm in now.

Spring cleaning.
How many things are left in here that i've been hiding?
Spring cleaning.
And if it's all wiring,
then who is it that i've been hiding it from?

All of this i never touch,
i haven't thrown it out. Lazy.
I hold on to way too much.
I'm sentimental to the point it's crazy.

And sometimes i fear
i'm only moving all the mess around.
but scattered out, it's clear.
now let's sort this out.

i've been cleaning out the closets.
'cause it's around that time of year.
Can't be skimping on deposits,
so i've been doing what i can around here.

If you could take me back a decade,
maybe i could have worked this out,
but right now i can't promise much.

That's why i've been cleaning out the closets.
'cause it's around that time of year.
Can't be skimping on deposits,
so i've been doing what i can around here.

If you could take me back a decade,
maybe i could have worked this out,
but i can't promise
i wouldn't have made the mess that I'm in now.

Spring cleaning.
That me you think of doesn't think like me.
That's my fault.
Spring cleaning.
My talking's messy and it's hard to read.
That's my fault.
