lyrics

{2. RABBITEARS} As the last dying wavelets of the fading hockey season ebb into the river deltas of the spring and
summer bargains you and I stood miles apart ankle-deep in the current and laid back you could still see glare from the
headlights even after the cars had passed by our retinas were imprinted images fading fast from memory at least as fast
as you will let me shake the static out of my hair I think that the anchorman is wearing ties he’s hanging by threads of
polyester cotton empathy cast in smiling monochrome I suppose he’s scripting all our best advice I sat admiring your face
reflected in the steel-cold slate-grey the darkened screen was flickering we saw spirits in the pixels as they sputtered to
a stop we held hands in their dim demise I know that the test pattern is telling lies I can’t believe we fell asleep long years ago on this couch awakened by the monotone we’re still dozing through this piercing false alarm the soft light of a silver screen filters the best parts of daylight into the living room a numbness washes over me the technicolours are fading into a black and white the talk show host has alibis she’s getting by on babies kissed with collagen lips for the cameras outpourings of anguished affection you can tell her anything I think the city can still hear me singing but I don’t care if they’re listening point your rabbitears skyward hear the old songs getting tired of being dirges by the fire of the pale screen that’s displaying the first rings of another last hurrah que sera, sarah whatever’s meant to be between two and three divide in long form in short order then subtract the remainder of the day
