lyrics

Over-thinking, over-analyzing,
(Stinging salts are thrown into my greatest fears)
Sapped by singing, the secrets of the earth, boy,
(The soul would lack in rainbows if the eye lacked tears).
Helter Skelter, sit alone.
Take your shelter, secret stone.

A form of pretending, a stitch needing mending,
I’m patching up my outlook.

Over-thinking, over-analyzing,
(The thoughts, the words are filling in the air)
Sapped by singing, the secrets of the earth, boy,
(The soul would lack in rainbows if the eye lacked tears).
I can’t talk to you at all.
(Stinging salts are thrown into my greatest fears)
Scattered thoughts in sloppy scrawls.
(The soul would lack in rainbows if the eye lacked tears).

A form of pretending, a stitch needing mending
I’m patching up my outlook
A form of pretending, a stitch needing mending
I’m patching up my outlook

The summer evening took us
Your clear white skin still glowing
You had these things to tell me
Keep the time ticking forwards
Your wide eyes knocked me backwards
All these things I won’t tell you
Before I die.
