lyrics

"tell me everything, and take your time," I said.
now your bromides stain my mind with photoluminescent dye.
as I wait my turn to speak, language center's stultified.
fruit is sweet, and past its peak.
you fill your cheeks, but miss the signs.

you've got symptoms.
we only can discuss kittens.
you've got symptoms.
breaking through the cross rhythms
of our interlocking mental prisons.
in my diagnosis
you must have your reasons.

how to treat you when I'm surely no physician?
nonetheless it's plain that there's a worsening condition.

as we reach the red line, hang your head on mine.
always time for one more chance.
now I fear that time has passed.

due to symptoms.
there hasn't been a thought given
to those symptoms.
breaking through the cross rhythms
of our interlocking masochism.
in my diagnosis
you don't even notice.

how to fix this when I'm surely no magician?
possibly you know it's an impossible position.

happy to not be scared of you
it's dumb to do that anymore, I think.

new dream: gone already.
new dream: same as the old.
new dream: happy, happy.
new dream: scared.
