LYRICS:

Blueprints for your great escape
Stacks in the attic of video games
Shark in a jar on the sill
Breathing formaldehyde in through his gills

Evenings we spent in July
Pointing our telescope up to the sky
And when we’d say our prayers every night
We’d ask for someone to come down from the lights
And take us away, take us away

When he’d come home, full to the brim
You know what I know: there’s no talking to him
Dungeons and dragons
Dungeons and dragons

Inside the game, you’re okay
Longswords and spellcasting keeps all the bad away
And the monsters look how monsters do
Not like neighborhood kids with their hands full of rocks for you
And not like the grown ups who should be protecting you

When he’d come home, full to the brim
You know what I know: there’s no talking to him
Oh no, go hide yourself
You know there’ll be hell to pay, and you’re the one paying
But soon as you’re done, we can go back to playing
Dungeons and dragons

Broken but who knows what for
Lean in to listen for a key in the door

Now I come home, full to the brim
It’s hard to not feel like I’m some part of him
Oh no can’t hide from myself
I know there’s still hell to pay
Now I’m the one paying
if we ever got done we could go back to playing
Dungeons and dragons
Dungeons and dragons
