understanding salesmen lyrics – eels

a knock on the door means
h*llo jesus calls
a ring on the phone means
a trip to niagara falls

daddy don’t let me down this time
i’m all alone inside my mind
and it’s no small thing
that i must prove to you

a late night card game
with the guys is alright
but i would rather take you
for a test drive

daddy don’t let me down this time
i’m all alone inside my mind
and it’s no small thing
that i must prove to you

while i look out
on the p*ssing fields
the sun through the bugs
on the windshield
makes me feel
like i
don’t matter

a knock on the door means
h*llo jesus calls
a ring on the phone means
a trip to niagara falls
