Circling the party when we meet
If I should be so shy
Just pivoting and looking at my feet
I never get that high
I keep hands out of pockets on the street

I'm bracing for the fall
I promised I would call
If I am on my way

So listen while I entertain the guests
If I should call your name
I want to put the silverware to rest
But I won't be ashamed
Before I call the cab and then confess
Get into the wire
Am I properly attired?

If I can get back upstairs and find you fast asleep
After I stack up the chairs and stumble down the street
And if it's too late for you, it'll be all right
After I split back in two
It'll be the sight of morning forcing me to open up my eyes

So take a name if anyone should call
Because I'm going back to sleep
Where minutemen don't have to be so tall
And promises will keep

But let me know me before I hit the wall
Set it for the wire
Am I properly inspired?
