lyrics

It ain’t about Joe giving up or letting go.
It’s about how Mary takes full control.
Oh but Mary always thinks about her husband’s routine.
To a man she believes in and the air he breathes.
When you coming home?
Dinners getting cold, I’m here all alone.
She’s a woman in a fish bowl drowning in his routine.
She’s too far in as he sealed her fate.
But the love she feels it’ll never dissipate.
Joseph works “late” drinking in what Mary dictates,
at the local dive for his “last escape”.
Oh as Joseph speaks smooth, he thinks he’s got his slick ways,
But everybody at the bar knows Mary has the last say.
When you coming home?
Our kids want to know, we’re here all alone.
He’s a man in fish bowl drowning in his routine,
He’s too far in as she sealed his fate.
But as denial sets in he’ll always take her bait.
It’s a marriage in a fish bowl drowning in this routine.
They’re too far in as they sealed their fate.
But with the love they share it’ll never evaporate.
It ain’t about Joe giving up or letting go.
It’s about how Mary takes full control.
