LyricsEdit

Move inside while you can
The drying heat will soon contract
Your patience and my sandy skin
To lie here dormant in the wind

Waiting for the ???
To ask me where I've been

Piling sandstone fragments on
The north side of the hill
Or careening through the freeways
While the downtown's lying still
Lying still

It's 3 o'clock in the morning and I realize I forgot
To take care of the dishes in the kitchen
'Cause this dream is intruding all the time
Overlaying images of something

Someplace where I'm drowning in heat
Sunlight, plastic suburb street
Stolen water greens these lawns
Look, some kid's dropped a red crayon

A kid ???
Something ??? back

Everything here
Is giving way
???
???

Close your eyes

Save me

A little girl is crying "mom"
Resonating like a metal snare drum
As the switch goes off
Shedding petal after petal
She closes

Move inside while you can
The drying heat will soon contract
Your patience and my sandy skin
To lie here dormant in the wind
Waiting ???

???

Close your eyes

Save me
???

???
