2010. I'll let you know if I ever really get there.

lyrics

Last night, I dreamed that I was wandering again.
She put me in the labyrinth, leviathan, leftover, I was
lost among the minotaurs, too tired even to pretend
that she was next to me. I started making for the exit.

There's something here I can't explain.
It looks like poetry, but written in the rain and scattered.
It feels like getting sober,
or trying to remember.
I hope I'm getting over you.

I woke to find that I was in a burning house and then I
smacked my alarm and slept for twenty minutes more and when I
woke up again, the world was quiet as a mouse, and then I
sifted through the ashes for a solitary moment.

There's something here I can't explain.
It looks like poetry, but written in the rain and scattered.
It feels like getting sober,
or trying to remember.
I hope I'm getting over you.

I burned the postcards and the flowers and the passports.
I burned the memories themselves, and I am pretty sure that
this is the reason why my house has turned to cinder.
I'm a man made out of matches, and I'm learning not to play with fire.

There's something here I can't explain.
It looks like poetry, but written in the rain and scattered.
It feels like getting sober,
or trying to remember.
I hope I'm getting over you.

There's something here I can't explain.
It looks like poetry, but written in the rain and scattered.
It feels like getting sober;
I'm trying to remember.
I hope I'm getting over you.
