lyrics

Mouths cross to wander alleyways and back roads barely lit
Digging potholes with a fib or two to seal the deal
This morning turned into next year
The ghost you wanted was mine
So, let's get on with the execution and the wake to follow
Callously eulogizing with a grin
Confounded, shaking, and bemused
But fighting, nonetheless
With a frameless photo with some writing on the back
Addressed to older eyes than mine
Faulting my tower for being "too tall," then holding my hand
As it fell out of your good grace
Redacting all the names I thought you might know!
Thinking we held our gaze "offset from the normal" form
Encrusting crowns with thoughts unsold
With fictions greater than the sum of the parts we stole
Worth nothing more than what we brought
Burned down the foundry in Act I
Never looking back
Never, really, moving forward only pointing where
The lost horizon used to be
Repairing crooked toes to take me where I need to go
Away from the house with laughing windows
Guaranteed to put me in my place!
Thinking we held our gaze.....
Acting cheap theatre in my room
Fighting critics' blows
Reading the "cruel story of youth," down the hall from "old."
Ended up dining on our peers
The ghost you needed was mine
So let's get on with the execution and the wake to follow
Eulogizing, climbing out the window
Thinking we held our gaze....
