water bent on my stroke and back
it's a sugar day to cool off
drink it up when it turns the sky blue

walk a mile 'til the sander's fall
he's the kind that winks his shoes on
was it him in the steam mirror

i could lay in the towel and grass
watch the dogs lick the stainless handrail
climb a limb with my endless fingers

scan the line for a fellow's fall
spare the change it will all work out
skip along its the happy empty

fell around to the city beat
in the park there's a thousand balls
i guess that's the outline of pavement

heard the laughter of a passing car
well there's a shot at kissing wonder
an empty field and a clap of thunder

what's that feeling when i'm alone
i get a cold i twist my sheets up
could i ever make it go

there are too many blades to grow
i can't pick it's my greatest ripper
what will make my machine wake up
is now the time that i could fool my days away

final shots of the grainy toes
they're the ones that i'm holding dearly
got to pace for the tidal shuffle

asleep in my neighbor's lawn
a cartoon would scare me screaming
but this is the calmer's plane

care the night in my lover's hand
whispered by the lucky wind
good notes from a faraway family

play a card it's your turn to go
gather your friend in the den of the one bed
brick withers through the painted glass

what to do at the end of time
i cannot figure out how to move my mouth in rhyme
cannot fathom the infinite line
and if i were true what would be my crime

and what's the deal with all this space
all these people within every place
everyone is chattered up
everyone is i don't know i give up

but again i hold onto the strings that sing to me
so when the darkness falls i know they're there for me

filler up on the cluttered shelf
i could button the endless catalog
blister on the back of an angle

were you a part of me
well yeah that once was the question
come on body you know the answer to that
