The clocks conspire
The sheets fall away awhile
A bigger denial
I fall asleep tonight and smile

Stay with me
Cause I’m less than electric
Keep the seeds
Burry them hide them till they shine

“Its fine to sing
But don’t ever let them hear you”
Thoughts a disease
Let it scream
Shake them all away

In harmonies
We seek the unique and unseen
We fall on our knees
Just to cope with the larger things


Hold fast bide your time
For one sweet moment you shimmer and shine
We spin around and all fall dead
Don’t worry son its in your head

Come close don’t speak dear
Its better not to know than to know fear
What you seek, it cannot hurt you unless you find it
it will desert you

You cannot sleep, and thats OK
Outbursts of stress to start they day
We spin around and all fall dead
Don’t worry son its all in your head

You shimmer
You shimmer and fade away
Shimmer and fade away
