So long; we sail for safer shores
with no wind in the sails, no hands at the oars.
Too long we've cut for paper sores
that we scrape off and save like files in a drawer.
Every day we find new ways to hate, every night on the phone we're in love.

Living on the script of a foreign king
doesn't mean you step on a fool like me.
So far the future seems to me;
to be the parking garage of old St. Pete.
Looking hard you can see the end of the war,
but behind you they're setting off bombs and guns.
The magician has to play so dumb for the spell to work, to save the song.

I've been over the Moon for much too long.
I have never stood behind a line that's drawn.
I'm waiting for the world to come back down.
I will kiss you in the ashes; pull you to the ground.

A head without dreams, a heart with no comforting.
Nothing there.
The Apple of Weeds, the Sun and the emptiness,
I held you there.
Your hand touching me, none of those bills to pay,
I'll see you there.
Your foot in a stream, without any clothes to wear,
I'll see you there.
