No time to figure us out until we're pulled from structure's sewing Wheeled down into a hallway half asleep halo glowing Drift back through a parade of faces back to chutes and ladders Most times I hear that the separation feels like nothing matters And you back porch light is on Will you call us in at dark? With no net, walking the corners of your mind must be frightening Deep breath, but it's such a lovely time of year to travel lightly I told all of the cells I'm made of reach but they only reach so far So was it just a figment of my mind when I saw you arm in arm? And you back porch light is on Will you call us in at dark?

Devout static eyes, undercurrent right on time I can feel the pull Left the fever home, a magnetic highway drone and a second wind But why'd you go so soon? Spooked and your eyelids bruised Was it something you saw? Architecture bleeding out, you think just to think out loud It's motion and law But heaven's won't you step outside, there's something in my car you need to see There's something on the stereo, the disappointment of the century And already we can feel the sun setting in the street A sentimental phrase, a dolled up sequential haze i've been locked in for days The sounds escaping through our doors cracks were dripping youth Held my backbone in place We sat tight at the top of the stairs, lives glued together It's all in a backdraft A saturated bliss, a punchline to cross our lips we're a long way from home Retired backyard friends, cool dusk, electric fence I forget their address But why'd you go so soon, spooked and your eyelids bruised Was it something you saw? But heaven's won't you step outside, there's something in my car you need to see There's something on the stereo, the disappointment of the century And already we can feel the sun setting in the street

You've seen one too many films, an obliterated conscience You don't recognize your friends, don't' recognize your losses I never said I'd count on hearing your footsteps 700 miles and a heart attack leaves you nothing The new ravenous debate, our mouths watering to find out if There's some terrible descent that's still camouflaged and waiting to take us one by one I never said I'd count on hearing your footsteps 700 miles and a heart attack leaves you nothing It's 700 miles I never said I'd count.

other lives are the friendly ghosts you couldn't cut off memory sleeps in your former haunts guilt's at home in a willing host midwestern souls chasing the lines of a warmer coast blue menthol air cool asphalt harvests the branches bare white skyline bathing in light despair steeped in a lavendar glow a long spell of televised hell is time alone feeling faint as fluorescent hum sedate four-lane cover the hills with collapsing veins hope spinning frame that made me want to be a saint compassion bends where the gospel breaks steeped in a lavendar glow a long spell of televised hell is time alone

Intentions are sound, remission has crawled back home now it disappears just to kickstart the blood dragged from a dream, and don't have a heart to spare though it's still romantic to swim in their floods Spare your skeletal diction, tear me limb from limb and straighten my tie I've stood here for hours just terrified We've seen this before, said "home doesn't feel like home now" the rabid sunset, the shadows and walls A paralyzed tongue, this faith isn't terminal yet Still, we drag our phantom quilts down the hall Spare your skeletal diction, tear me limb from limb and straighten my tie I've stood here for hours just terrified Bones. Dear bones.
