lyrics

Staring down the mouth of an exaggerated
shadow, you folded
worrying to death about the document collapse
of time.
What did you expect running inward with the
fourth dimension?
You drew up your conclusions but so suddenly
you ran out of line.

You held your newspaper
up to the light
read the bad news backwards
it’s still black and white.

You call in all your favors,
desperate measures count
for desperate people
Judgment is a hammer
and you know I do not miss when I swing
If I have to leave you,
you should know that I will leave you enamored
And if you have to know, then you should know
that I do not miss thing.

You held your newspaper
up to the light
read the bad news backwards
it’s still black and white
I’ll see you next Sunday
light shining through
thinking maybe one day
I’ll get back to you.
