"On a Neck, On a Spit" as written by Christopher Robert Bear, Daniel Raphael Rossen, Christopher M. Taylor and Edward Droste....
My messenger in disguise
Makes up for such short goodbyes.
You can't come home again.
Each time it's different.
And the yards around your feet fall away while you're asleep.
Each day, spend it with me now.

All my time, spend it with me now.
But each day spend it with you now.
All my time, spend it with you now.
But out here, no one can hear me,
Out hear no one can hear me.

    General CommentOn a Neck, On a Spit
    (neck could refer to a guitar or other 'necked' instrument, I think 'spit' refers to the archaelogical, or a coastal landform, though it could refer to rotisserie style turning thoughts over again and again, especially since most animals on a spit are impaled through the neck... I am actually convinced that the intended message includes all of those meanings)

    My messenger in disguise
    (this song)
    makes up for such short goodbyes
    (art has permanence)
    You can't come home again
    Each time it's different
    (old adage: "you can never go home")
    And the yards around your feet fall away while you're asleep
    (when you're not paying attention, when you're not in the place, it dissapears, again referring to the types of spit mentioned above)

    Each day, spend it with me now
    All my time, spend it with me now
    (the narrator spends all their time with themselves now)
    But each day spend it with you now
    All my time, spend it with you now
    (but they wish for the object of the song)
    But out here, no one can hear me
    Out hear no one can hear me
    (out where they're singing their message cannot be heard)

    General CommentI have a vague feeling this song is about a guy who longs for his old home that really no longer exists. He had a time where he spent most of his time by himself but he was lonely then so he's now latched on to someone and created a new "home" but he knows its false.
