It's a one-foot-over-the-other Sunday morning
And your walking to the grocery for grapefruit
The morning chews your heels as if you were standing still
They say you can't be slow in this world you've got to speed through

Bisect the grapefruit and sprinkle on the sugar
Use the good silver and wash it back with coffee
Yes, something is missing but you can't put your finger on it
But you know you ain't lonely

You can thumb your nose at the universe but that won't make you matter
You can thumb your nose at matter but that won't make you disappear
You can go through the motions with course hands and cold emotions
But that won't make it any easier

Sucking on the grapefruit ain't it sweet and bitter
You can feel the sun looking down and judging you
As you picture her on fire burning on some black highway
They say you can't be slow in this world you've got to speed through
Picture her on fire flaming Christmas on the highway
They say you can't be slow in this world you've got to speed through
