from tennessee to tokyo the centuries are quickening hyperbole is thickening but you can take your time you can take it slow the histories in front of you are many but just one is true mortal wounds and mortal sin circle us like birds of prey it feels just like the judgment day but the end of time has always been to see it you must look away to bear it, lose your barricades
parallels 03:12
violinist, drinking guinness i just can't seem to ever start what i finish scented candle on your mantle says apple pie but i'm not buying that shit it smells like cinnamon and that's really it woke up this morning in an orchestra pit you could be a ballerina and i could be someone that you'll never see or i could be your little eeyore and you could be my little winnie the pooh i'll give you honey and you'll give me the blues i never liked you but i like what you do i went to graceland, stood on the grand stand but a missing person told me to get lost my lucky penny told me to get tossed my lord and savior told me to get crossed and william weller told me to get sauced hello lamp post, you're a lamp post when the hell did i start talking to lamp posts?
generationalization puts me in the worst kind of place puts me in the mood to change the station throws me down hard on my face throws me a bone for consolation generationalization puts you in a beautiful box pumps you with plastic inspiration sells you the Sign of the Clock sells you to the prodigal nation
go, goliath 04:42
go, goliath go, goliath i know i'm not supposed to cheer for you but so what if i do? and so what if you lose? oh, icarus i know you don't exist and i'm not supposed to act like you but who cares if i do? and who cares where you flew? [joyful electric guitar takes to the skies] go, goliath i know you're just a myth and i'm not supposed to cheer for you but so what if i do? and so what if you lose?
well i think it's time for me to get leaving believe me darling, i wish it wasn't so but with the rising sun comes another day of working and just for now, i think it's time to go yes, i think it's time for sweet goodbyes my darling i'll see you again at the end of the day you'll be in my heart in every passing moment but for now it's time for me to go away well it goes without saying that i love you and i'll love you forever, this i vow and it's harder to leave you than i can put in words but goodbye is really just goodbye for now
