Christopher is always in his head, she said
I think it came without a sound -
The world woke up and he broke down

Christopher was always good with the girls, she said
But even so I never saw
him fall in love with one at all

When he's tired, she said
he always goes down
When he's tired, she said
he always goes down
he always goes downstairs

Christopher was never wild. He's glad, she said
His father was a stupid man,
says Christopher, and so began
His goal just to be better than
some long-gone, no-good, stupid man
He could have made a better plan
He should have made a better plan

Christopher would burrow deep if he could, she said
Somewhere far away from here
And sleep until he disappeared

When he's tired, she said
he always goes downstairs
We don't see him for hours
for hours, for hours
