so this is what it all comes down to this is how it all begins everything pulsates from center at the start of a chain reaction and ooh, what's that sound? oh it's you, ripping your own heart out and ooh, listen carefully: it's the sound of you tearing your own life apart so this is how the world really is? one small event after another piles up in due time and you are done for? and ooh, what's that sound? oh it's you, ripping your own heart out and ooh, listen carefully: it's the sound of you tearing your own life apart i want to start again please, just let me try again there's got to be a way to make the pieces fit painlessly this time jettisoned all of my friends factored out to simplify the equation it's all numbers now think of the greater good! that's how stories are told that's how alliances are made and broken this is how you bring the world to its knees this is how you are brought to term disease and ooh, what's that sound? oh it's you, ripping your own heart out and ooh, listen carefully: it's the sound of you tearing your own life apart

this is a situation that any sense would teach me to avoid i have tried time and again to save myself from you i used to fight and i used to say it was impossible (so stop thinking it) and i would make up lists of why i couldn't stand you but every time i look at you i drown, unable to take full breath around you every time i think we're close, you end up mentioning her name like some old married man who brings his wife up to curb some kid's advances is she a safety to you? i am not very confident when i am it's always the wrong time so i am sort of like a dead weight with pincers 'cause when you try to pull me out and i'm not ready (no matter how long i've waited) i'll sink my claws into you, sometimes forever and when you don't try i'll just float near the bottom and look up at your light, far above me and slam into the rocks every morning as i wake from a beautiful freefalling dream of you clinging like a crab and never letting go and meanwhile here you are confessing to me that you can't imagine life without her! your brain is stuck in an endless loop of 'she loves me, she loves me not' and there's no saving you from this-- i've run out of hooks, i have no bait left i ended up being caught hey, i remember the clouds outside my window when you told me who you loved i don't remember if you ever told me why but when i think of her i still see clouds above there are things i would never see as sweet 'til they surfaced in him i'm outside pressed against the glass like a specimen eyes half-underwater and blurred and dim and i'd like nothing better than to move this into safer harbors but every time i give up hope, the attention keeps pinning me down how can i explain to you the position i'm in: that every time i look at you i drown?

when they fall down at my door when they crawl and ask to be let in i am your last resort you come to me with nothing i was your missile testing ground far too eager to be found and useful to some one and god look where i am taking in strays again i am your motel 6 enter and leave me just feel free to do what you please and take my time take whatever you need it seems far too soon when they find their way out again they leave by the back door while i'm caught off-guard my little fledglings i had nursed you for so long i had forgotten that you were hiding wings

pleased to meet you! thrilled to be here! salutations! charmed, i'm sure! what's shaking? how's it hanging? may i help you? lovely weather... i've been plotting and scheming as to what i will do and if you're thinking what i'm thinking well, i've thought that too why fight a storm that isn't coming? don't put it off 'til it's too late are you aware i know your dirty little secret? are you aware that i reciprocate? what's new? how you doing? i'm ok, for the most part how's it going? thanks for showing (please have my heart) i've been plotting and scheming as to what i will do and if you're thinking what i'm thinking well, i've thought that too why fight a storm that isn't coming? don't put it off 'til it's too late are you aware i know your dirty little secret? are you aware that i reciprocate? people always remind me-- that is, to badly paraphrase-- one way or another-- that is to say: "don't put all of your heart in one place" still, can't help feeling giddy can't help feel anything at all but alive and well when i contemplate your meaning, decipher the code of this shy Rosetta Stone i will have to wait and see, i suppose, if my education has paid off; am i right? am i right? little tired alive and wired feeling restless and you? what's the good word? how're you keeping? are you sleeping? how do you? i've been plotting and scheming as to what i will do and if you're thinking this is tired well, i've thought that too why fight a storm that isn't coming? don't put it off 'til it's too late are you aware i know your dirty little secret? are you aware that i reciprocate?

flying through this tiny space i'm here to teach you a little grace 'cause there's nothing that i haven't done there's nothing that i wouldn't do again your shadow follows me around i look where i've been but it's not me you're steady now, steady on running me to ground i'm fighting my way in between you're gonna get cut off you're gonna miss those pieces of yourself but you'll learn to travel light wrap your body round and slip between don't worry-- we never touched i just tried to get by, couldn't wait long enough you'll continue pushing or else you'll wait impatiently pretending you are pushing your shadow follows me around i look where i've been but it's not me you're steady now, steady on running me to ground i'm fighting my way in between the doors here only open once be quick as you can and have your destination well-planned: you are here what did you expect to find? you take out of turn you walk across lines call me crazy but look at you now there's no power that's great enough left to pull you out your shadow follows me around i look at what i've done but it's not me you're steady now, steady on running me to ground i'm fighting my way in between

your name slips like quicksilver from my mind i don't feel that tug on the other side of the rope 'cause i've let go to watch you sail, float, sink, i don't know every time that you've saved me every good thing you've done it slips by it just slips by somewhere right around here is a dried-up river bed someone upstream must have got too greedy i guess and i feel all hollowed out all used up and forgotten about waiting for someone to heal me waiting for someone to fill me with purpose every time that you've saved me every good thing you've done it slips by why'd you have to be the lesson and not the prize? why'd you have to end up just another rest stop in my life? now i'm supposed to throw the empty wrappers in keep the city clean courtesy of a faceless waste bin and just conclude my small part and get into my car and go it alone? i leap at every possibility that enters my mind each unknown variable approaching my life throw in another pinball double my score or lose it all either way it's been fun but you know i'd never be one to let you see me cry every time that you've saved me every good thing you've done it slips by it just slips by

about

Never Right Now San Jose, California

Genre outlaws from San Jose, CA. One moment we sound a little like Thom Yorke falling asleep to Tori Amos after having a fight with Trent Reznor. And in the next moment, not at all.
