I'll spend this day in a reverie
I won't focus on anything
I don't have to
I don't feel the need
Look at the others with contempt or is it envy?
I'll stand in your room and all I can make out are the corners
It's enough to let me know where I stand
It's the barest minimum to function
But I'll be good
I promise to do better
Some things are forgotten
Other things matter
Something else is always proving far too strong
I guess I've been a window gazer all along
See the sparrows fly in low
There was a place you said you would take us
Can we go please?
Spent the day in society's refinery
Unable to focus on anything
There's too much here
Too many people
Only way out lies through a major arterial
You remember when we talked about our beloved escape
A place without all the shuffle and scrape and lack of philanthropy
To where there's more trees than cars and leaves have been dried out by the sun
I'll spend this day in reverie
I won't focus on anything
I don't have to
I don't feel the need
This is the closest that I'll come to relief
But I'll be good
I promise to do better
Some things are forgotten
Other things matter
Something else is always proving far too strong
I guess I'll remain a window gazer from now on

    General CommentFor sure. I saw them play with Pilot to Gunner last weekend and Shuffle and Scrape (along with Over the Lawn) rocked out.. And it wouldn't of been the same without Donnies wacko puppet dance moves.

    General CommentLots of Aussie/NZ acts don't get enough recognition. Check out Sommerset as well.
