with every morning chore
you look around once more
so that your eyes will adjust
to all the grain and dust

all the time spent over nothing
seems like you're done
you are

i was pacing around
and just recording it down
i had nothing to say
i'm done for another day

'cause i don't want to share you
so don't say goodnight, no
don't say goodnight

it's too dull to pause
and to remember the cause
it's just too dull to care
so we cue from another mirror

in the icy edge
we steal our reflections
when we pass on by
when we pass by

    General CommentHow dull it is to pause, to make an end,
    To rust unburnish'd, not to shine in use!

    General CommentMy favorite song of this excellent album; such an upbeat shift for junior boys, though it retains their sense of melancholy with sweeping slide guitars and beautifully sung lyrics.
