“Crawler” lyrics:

Let’s break bottles
Let’s jump off chairs
I’ll do that much
To show I care
And no, I won’t say it again
There’s no good reason why this shouldn’t end

And things keep happening that can’t be true
Does what you say make sense to you?

And I know you want to be alone
These fragile words stand on their own
And here’s that rain we’ve been waiting for
Is there love in the sound of a closing door.

And things keep happening that can’t be true
Does any of this make sense to you?
