Complete lyrics:

What ghosts exist behind these attic walls?
There's got to be a simpler explanation
'cause I scrimped and I saved
just to find that they've been splicing my inventions.
Cold skin and bones and this latitude
we ain't paying til the heat comes through.
So you slept in a stocking cap and wool scarf and

Promises of payments were
upon your shoulders constantly
but don't forget to entertain 
'cause this is your first defense.

Four year offense to the devoted type
I may have got an invitation but I wasn't invited.
But I thought that this meant
something more than broken hearts and new addictions.
We'll leave our sins within the carpet twine.
Our bodies will dissolve the chemicals in due time.

Promises of payments were 
upon your shoulders constantly
but don't forget to entertain 
'cause this is your first defense. 
This is your first defense.

This is your first defense.
This was your first defense.
This is my last defense.
