I think I've had enough of your world for today
My head has opened up, and your pictures fall like rain
In front of my face, they spin

We were corresponding shapes, like the rocks in a ledge
Now this puzzle has been rained upon and the corners lost their edge
Nothing fits as it once did
But at least we had finished at...

All over this room I reign, you are
All over this room I reign, you are
All over this room I reign, you are
What's wrong with that?
Nothing, I guess

So I entertain my mind with little ticks and movie tricks
Combinations of quirky comedies, but they've all got romantic twists
And when I can't forget, I write--that's how this whole thing came to be
It helps me when I'm lonely, yeah

All over this room I reign, you are
All over this room I reign, you are
All over this room I reign, you are
What's wrong with that?
Nothing, I guess

[Side 1:]
So, I guess you're right, I did abhor the awkward silence we endured
And spoke a truce to stop the swell and slow this spinning carousel
Yet still it spun from time to time, laced with mistrust that cracked the spine
This feeble frame just would not hold and sparked the drifting of two souls
I am not ready, nor deserve a line of love that can't be blurred
Into a shallow blotch of lust, a dirty thought, a pointless fuck
I never properly explained this bodied beauty you contain
Is too much for a man to take at such an ageless-feeling age

[Side 2:]
Works, this circle never works
This cycle of the poet and his dame
Who never could explain this tired plot
Insistent it would stop
Convinced that every problem soon would rest
That bad things at their best would fix themselves
But those things, you just can't tell
And it's taunting in this straitjacket of hope
It blinds and it disrupts the ebb and flow
The process of letting go
The pattern on this strange, bright-lighted stage
The stigma at this ageless-feeling age

All over this room I reign, you are
All over this room I reign, you are
All over this room I reign, you are
What's wrong with that?
Nothing, I guess
Oh, nothing, I guess
Nothing, I guess
