Took you long enough to guess that
Wondered if you thought at all
Still the honest man would have to tip his hat to any swine
Who could truly pull it off
Lately I tip my hat a lot
And I was warned that you would be there
That there would be a splendid mess
The mutual friends were none the wiser
And hadn't thought ahead
Made the rounds and said goodbye
I've got bigger fish to die for

In this great big empty dry spot
Far beyond all quenching
Every morning eye is caked
Against the membrane of the day
Like the insect when it's trapped
Beats itself against the glass
I guess it had to come to this big empty

What was said became a mish-mash
What'd she say about her new action
Over rolling crust of lips
A languid ventilation lifts
Little parascopic heads
What you see is who you get

To fill the great big empty
Never mind what I am thinking
By the warm and lucid rush
By the heart of frozen blood
Made the vows that are the accidents
Happening on purpose when it fits into this
Great big empty

I packed my bags for a lengthy stay in a tropical place
I couldn't keep myself contained
So it's official we're ignoring monumental consequences we just can't erase
I love you more when you're away
And when you're gone I walk the floors
I've got duties to ignore

Every morning I awake
In the middle of the day
Every morning I'm still dumb enough
To hope and pray
That this begins a never-ending
Great big empty

Looked at you long enough to catch that
I needed putting in my place
The mutual friends are getting wiser
About looking for mistakes
And the harder knocks you take
The less you feel when you wake up

In this great big empty dry spot
That my throat is drinking
Every morning, eye conceals
What the night before reveals
By the mumble and the spiel
By the way your fate is sealed
And it fits into this great big empty
