come off it, you know you want to start it
just tell it right
come off it, you know you have to drop this
a thousand acre canvas and you couldn’t bear to crop it
i’m a little tired, i'm a little weak
it weighs an ounce in silver, and ten pounds in fresh meat
when she fools you, she fools you in distortion
the night rare topics left us all out in the open
if it lasts an instant, it will smart one week
if it costs a weekend, oh my god oh good grief

i haven’t seen you now for years
i hear you stepping down each step
your body burning through a shuttered glade

i’ll play the listing doctor, righted by the rube,
you play the unkempt nurse, where lighting’s confused
they tangle antlers over all you said you think you could do
which tangle up mine too, but i’ll be back next year,
with a cape and a cane, and my frail restraints
first the actors, then brokers, last the ad-men lose disdain
you got off early, from where ever you’d been
one single flaw, and we’re back at the beginning

i haven’t seen you now for years
i hear you stepping down each stair
a knowing laugh that could defy that place

i can feel it shifting back, from this, from this
i can feel it shifting back, from this, from this
you play the sleeping circuit boards,
i’ll play a rye escort
we could stand outside the din, again, again
we could stand outside the halls, again, again
you might even want me still, you just don’t know how
