lyrics

i am for whom the handrail strikes its note
kicking lollipops into the street
watching sunlight climb the bedroom

i’m the projection of a famous sound
cumulative wisdom has drowned out
with the proper way to speak my name

well wishers crowd the door that leads outside
dagger games in limbo on the roof
vacant windows fading into sight

i do not pretend that there is nothing left to do
and if i were you i would be tired of me too

every time i tell myself i’m thru with being dumb
i can’t open my grapefruit cause i chewed up my thumb

i paint the cloud’s eye
he’s not your friend he’s mine
i spin the wheel
was he the cloud
who bade the age go by?

i commit the sin of envy just by waking up
laughing at old photographs is just like growing up
just like growing up

i do not have a body or a mind
i am knots that perish in the sun
let me in the shade of your white van
