baby in the corner of your mind
you see it all unwind
cause you know how it ends
baby out the corner of my eye
i see you start to cry
you don't have to pretend

baby in the dumpster we will dive
who knows what we might find
when our spirit is wide
i'll even let you open up the seams
and place all of our dreams
where the pendulum swings

there are no signs
we're gonna have to cross the line just to find the line
forget all the words
we'll fill ourselves with a story that we have never heard
get the nerve
take a curve

everything i think is on display
my eyes give me away
and they say and they say
we're sick of being told we are naive
the world's become our sea
and we drink and we drink
'til we sink and we sink

it's not that bad
we'll hit up a dollar sale start the latest fad
then turn it up on its head
because the author gets to choose when the stories finally dead
no not yet
not yet not yet no no

we've been up and down this road
we put a knife in the fork
we've seen the sun we've seen the storm
baby what are we running from
the lightning struck and left a glow
it's hard to let some things go
we know what's false but don't know what's true
baby where are we running to

the weight of the book
the way to your heart
the guilt that you feel
the reason to start
the light is a blur
the light isn't free
the mind isn't sure
the heart should believe
the temperature drop
the temperature rise
the ice in your feet
the burn in your eyes
the broken alarm
the losing of sleep
the thought of the goal
the tug of the dream

the family you love
the stranger you hate
the food in your gut
the leftover plate
the poison you breathe
the science you fear
the meter you feed
the lies that you hear
the old haunted church
the hospital hall
the loop in the track
the rats in the wall
the political race
the seed that you plant
the power of fate
the following ant
dead ant
dead ant
dead ant
dead ant
dead ant
