lyrics

{5. A TRAINED EYE} I couldn’t make it work I’ve parsed through these lines I can’t compile I don’t know why naught for a second take it took a flawed process to find no one wants us to walk off a bruised leg limping forth, claiming our prize while wiping our eyes I’ve been on this system for days now I’m timed out of tiring of the syntax of what we say waiting
for the right time to tell you that it’s too late for the novel I’m writing down all my bad ideas committing them to paper planes and throwing them at you what could possibly mean less a day for the deadline to meet a hasty retreat from the front to back we sway side to side delay to decide the match struck like a deal three times it took a trained eye and eight glasses of wine and a break for three solid minutes of silent repose it’s late I suppose maybe but who knows if you would always have the last word my first impression was negative charged with the duty of building a consensus the bricks and mortar stand up straight stiff upper lip now I feel good about it when we both can’t wait jumping the turnstiles running the length of high-voltage tracks jumping across without looking back for security our hitching breaths are slowing us both down too the cameras are catching a tired me following after you
