an apparition or whatever you call it
a spectre waves his wand
and the leaves start falling
a white wall of cocoons on display
it's that wall that makes you sad all day

the souvenir burning that's burning you know
but then you never really tried to step away from the shadow
the ebb and the flow, the wax, the wane
from a blister to the callous, the pleasure to the pain

I put a moonbeam under my shoe
and crack it like a nut to release all the power
I like to dream what else can I do
a blessing and a curse
open up like a flower

always a light, raking through the summer sky
and it's more than just a general feeling for the first time

a dirty penny in my pocket for luck
I think I should've would've could've
thrown it back in the fountain

it's no joke when you're chasing a bus
growing older in a college town

shell games another form of control
show love???
another zero divided by no???

I put a moonbeam under my shoe
and crack it like a nut to release all the flavour
I like to dream what else can I do
to synthesize a taste from the fruit of my labour

always a light, raking through the summer sky
now won't you come and take a walk in them shoes before you criticise
can we open up a window to freshen the air
clarity may come when it's too late to care
always a light, raking through the summer sky
