Lyrics

cast your shadow long. halfway into his arms. and you know you don't belong here, don't you know? you don't belong. pleased to meet this perfect you. close my eyes, and see you feeling blue. please don't leave me, perfect you. 'cause i believe. (lazy days and castaways washed up on the shore) touch me with your laser beam. cut me open, and wash me clean. whiskey sour, sweet coffee cream. it's all a dream.

Lyrics

a see-through, soaring, lucid true girl. writing stories on a floating blue world. falling in love with distant quasars. when you fall hard, you see the prettiest stars. mirrors perfectly aligned, flashing signals to the blind. reeks of empty space. all the boring days in between things showing up on the radar screen is not enough to break me. (bring it back) smoke a hundred cigarettes, a hundred little deaths. a spiral arm to wrap around. I tried to be patient, I tried to be good. but it's too hard, I'm too rough, it's too much, it's not enough.

Lyrics

t's late, and your head is aching. it'll work itself out if you'd just be patient. get up. go to the window. radio tower's flashing what you already know: 'to be true is not such a hard thing to do.' not such a hard thing. let go. it'll all come back to you. would you think, or would you do what your heart's been telling you? close the door. open a window. listen to the traffic go. you're broken, bad and blue. not such a hard thing to do. not such a hard thing. it's late. and your head is aching. it could be so easy if you'd just stop faking. let's go--it'll all come back to you. what you say and what you do--is that what makes you true? not such a hard thing to do. not such a hard thing. (there's nothing wrong with you)

Lyrics

so pretty, a fish out of water. so lucky to think that you caught her. now there's this 'condition' to attend to, but soon! hauled on, bored again. can't get oxygen. the proper assistance has been called in. "just keep your distance, sir, and let us work. we know what we're doing, we'll take care of everything, now you just sit back, try to relax, and give us the facts."

Lyrics

the august moon was long and full 'til it met an empty december. you knew it all along. you knew it all along. you're looking through canyons for things that you left on your last pass through. you're stopping to chat with the very same siren as last time. and I can't touch anything without it breaking. ships at sea using their two-way radios, blinking: what's the other one thinking? 'it's a tough act to follow'.
