"The Sleeping States, or Who Has Been Rocking My Dreamboat"

(full title wouldn't fit)


watching your mouth in the evening
as the sun's going down
how low can you (drew?)
you said i never look when i sleep
cause i'm a slave to the night
and it keeps me from seeing too much
watching blue sky in the evening
as you're drying your eyes
maybe tonight i will look for you

as i stood up to go home
i offered you books for your mind
but you looked at me shaking your head
saying i start them all the time

remembering your eyes
as the sun goes down
asking how far would you go
to see

oh watching blue skies in the evening
as you're closing your eyes
how far can you go?

    Lyric Correctionwatching your mouth in the evening
    as the sun's going down
    how long can you dream
    you say i never look when i sleep:
    cause i'm a slave to the night
    and it keeps me from seeing too much
    watching blue sky in the evening
    as you're drying your eyes
    well, maybe tonight i will look for you

    as i stood up to go home
    i offered you books for your mind
    but you looked at me shaking your head
    saying i start them all the time

    remembering your eyes
    as the sun goes down
    asking: how far would you go
    to see?

    oh watching blue skies in the evening
    as you're closing your eyes
    how far can you go?

    General Commentthese lyrics are beautiful. the fragmented images of bodies, the sky. it makes all seem very fluid, very optical. i like it.
