"Threshing Machine" as written by and Philip B Price....
We took a picture together
We held the camera in front of us
Your arm was cutting right into the frame
Your smile was for both of us

Something about the way we looked that day
Caught in the act of trying to look away
From the sight of our hands caught in this threshing machine
Do you feel like you've seen anything,
Ever, at all?

We took a walk on the dykes
And walked by the proscenium arches
Paused at the mouth of a rabbit hole
Stared down and wondered how far did it go

Something about the way we talked that day
Caught in the act of trying to look away
From the sight of our hands caught in this threshing machine
Do you feel like you've felt anything,
Ever, at all?

Try to imagine us in a house
Try to imagine us in a car
Try to imagine us staying alive
And not just hiding away in this bar

Something about the way you looked today
Caught in the act of trying to look away
From the sight of your hands caught in this threshing machine
Do you feel like you've done anything,
Ever, at all?
Do you feel like you've said anything,
Ever, at all?

    General CommentIt starts out with a guy and a girl who are friends and hang out together. But each realizes they have stronger feelings for the other but are afraid to say anything, fearing that the other will not feel the same way. When they finally discuss the situation (the "rabbit hole"- a metaphor for a portal to new realm), they begin to doubt that they can ever live together as a serious couple. They cannot imagine themselves "in a house" or any other place that indicates commitment- they can never be more than friends.

    That's my interpretation, anyway.
