lyrics

Then I’m watching the meteor’s raining
I stick out my tongue; I cup my hands for a taste
And I watch the ground away

Cinderblocks rising off a flatbed truck,
teenagers float to the ceiling as they start to fuck
And I watch the ground away

Prairie dogs plotting beneath my feet
I guess they had more foresight
Than you or me
And I watch the ground away

Mariachis singing a song about moonrise
Or do I finally hear what the coyotes cry?
As I watch the ground away


*And I’ll call you back my way,
but I’ll use everyone’s name
to describe your taste
and I’ll use everyone’s face
to describe your face
(its all the same from far away)
and I watch the ground away


Avian’s cross-breeding with fish
Sharks are circling around my satellite dish
And I watch the ground away

Then the Border’s no longer the labyrinths first wall (Let it end well)
And Sonora forgive me, this time I will not fall (Let it end well)
And I watch the ground away

Drinking up the last of the dying sun (Let it end well)
Evelyn offers me the rest, says she’s had enough (Let it end well)
And we watch the ground away (Let it end with some semblance of grace)

*

Come on, I know I was just sitting in your bedroom
you're always bugging me, say you hear bell ringing
but you can never find the belfry
and you’re always bugging me, say you hear a bell ringing, but it’s never for our wedding.
O! you’re always in my dreams, you cant even give me peace of mind when my mind does not belong to me!
O! You’re always on my mind, begging me to waste my time trying to figure out how I could’ve done things right!
O. And you’re always bugging me, kissing me in dreams, even when I’m not asleep.
And you’re always bugging me, kissing me in dreams, even when I’m not asleep.
