by the time you read these words I will be gone
and I don't know if I'll be back
so before you ask
just remember
that we've been here before

I see through windows in the rain
through all the language left behind
and I watch you drink
invisible ink
so I won't know
when you swallow your words

I won't be there
to watch it all unravel
to watch the union come undone

the end could come at any time
with harvest hands and tv eyes
and the scientists
know the way it is
and we all know
and we follow them down

I hear you talking like a train
on concepts you can't quite explain
like a dictaphone
set especially slow
and I don't have the heart
to tell you what a fool you are

I won't be there
to watch it all unravel
to watch the union come undone

by the time you hear this tape I will be gone
and I won't be back
so don't even ask
cause we all know
and we follow
with our eyes on the sky
and our hands in the snow
