Sliding back and sifting through
the litter from a parade
I didn't realize I was tied to you
until you flipped the blade

Well Time had the laugh-lines
even its earthquakes cannot reach
When you drive all night in the palm of the moon
just to wake up on the beach

Paralyze me with a trembling body
Paralyze me with your Polaroid face
I didn't realize I really wanted you to know me
until you reached the gate

Purple lips from the graveyard shift
said it takes a train to weep
But your broken tongue and tombstone teeth
aren't yet drunk enough to speak

Well Time had its fault-lines,
even the laughter can slip through
When the hardest thing to imagine once
seems like the easiest thing to do
