lyrics

Time to get a cleaner

I cracked the egg onto the floor
Spilt milk into the sink
There’s a thousand things that I think
None of them are about cleaning

I killed the pet plant
Treading soil into the carpet
Terracotta splinters
Lucky we didn’t have a gold fish
But its

Time to get a cleaner
And it’s time to admit it
The things we have broken
We are not going to fix

I scratched the car
Backing into the driveway
Filled it in with a blue sharpie
It lasted
until the rain came

I broke the le creuset pan
Even though they say it’s indestructable
I'm sure it’s still in warrantee
But the receipts floating in
The drawer of no return and its

And it's
Time to get a cleaner
And it’s time to admit it
The things we have broken
We are not going to fix

We choose to walk on
Sticky floors
Peeling our heals and
To ignore
Piles of broken things
Behind closed doors

And it's
Time to get a cleaner
And it’s time to admit it
The things we have broken
We are not going to fix.
