The coyotes in the woods they’re all lining up for the kill
And the coyotes have sharp teeth and they’ve learned how to use knives
And they’re picking the locks and stealing into your house nd drinking all your poison
Now you’re packing the truck and boarding the windows I watched you leave in the morning
And there goes Miss Beauty-and-Brains, the class of ‘93 you’re heading for the land where the wolves will chase the coytes away
And you just wandered out of here, even took the scissors with you It’s another knot done cut, it’s another tie come undone

And I don’t know how I ended up like this
Counting cows on the hillside
And I don’t know how we ended up round here
Living on this cold cold planet

Broadcasters are calling for poor road conditions up and down the eastern seaboard
But you, you shot out all the lights, now you’re using the stars for navigation
And me and the Doc are sitting on the hill, trying not to talk about the way you feel
And me and the Doc and this cat named Dan, we planted a tree just to cut it down
The coyotes rebuilt our infrastructure and they’ve opened up trade routes with the folks upriver
They peace and harmony to our once troubled streets
But the storm clouds are gathering in the east
And we’re all digging in for a possible siege

And I don’t know how I ended up like this
Counting cows on the hillside
And I don’t know how we ended up round here
Living on this cold cold planet

And I’m sorry that I don’t love you
And I’m sorry I left you
And I’m sorry the world isn’t flat
And I’m sorry one day it’ll all come to an end
And I hate living in the northern hemisphere
And I hate not knowing the names of any constellations
And I hate this time of the evening
But I’m not a morning person
