lyrics

I awoke inside my coffee pot and saw myself
Open the lid
Just as soon as the spoon
came down, I drank some,
Tried remembering what I did
What I did
Why’s my house surrounded by these

Burning matches,
in the hands of little kids
With big eye-lashes
If I step outside they’ll turn my
feet into ashes
You have never seemed so far away
Who the hell left out the Milky

Wait, it’s not you,
Just the universe did not rehearse
returning me to you
But don’t worry i’ll be there
When everything seems to come down to
it won’t happen
And it won't happen

I took my suit, my coat, my suitcase and my throat
The street was burning but my heart was burning
So much harder
The crabs flew by, I grabbed one by the neck
it checked to see if i was
crazy or something
I guess I looked crazy or something
And the air freshener in the taxi smelled like

Booze and feathers, talked all the way to the airport
‘Bout the weather, as I left the cab everything
seemed to get better, who would have thought my flight had to land
In a third world bowl of sawdust yellow sand

How it flew
It’s like the universe keeps trying to
keep me away from you
And I felt helpless and remembered
How one night I told you this would never happen
And it won’t happen...
And it didn’t happen
