Mirror and smoke shed the light.
He reminds me of the you I am.
Moon beam burnt cows in the night—
How long will I lie underneath your lamb?
Bird’s got a lock with her song.
Outside lover says she’s ‘in the know’.
Just slip the key on my tongue.
I’ve got a problem with commitment though.
But I don’t need no drink.
I need a bigger head I think.
All the pills you thought I swallowed,
I just spit them down the sink.
Get up off of your 501’s and buy this guy a drink
‘Cause he’s crazy, lazy, everything just got a little hazy.
I could get out of this place,
But there’s a vague predictability:
Three squares and all of this place.
And I’m proud of my facility.
I could return if I wish,
And wear the make-up of my sanity.
But you with the memory of fish,
And salt water running from your vanity.
