It’s just a matter of time…

before we’re thrown back in the wheel.

Hey, there’s a horseshoe on my door — big deal.
And say, there’s a black cat on the floor — big deal.

Time.

Well do you know where you belong?
And is your star sign ever wrong?

The cards are speaking…

If these things change your day,
well if this song makes your day —

Seen it all before, seen it all before.
Given time these things will change…

And when you dream, you dream of the day
when you find something you can love half as much
as you love all your little round mirrors…

See yourself reflected in one —

All this lip distortion it brings me down.
So i’m not perfect — i still want you around.

I fight a peace that does not include you.  I fight an ending i didn’t choose.

Well i’ve been here before —
sat on a floor in a grey, grey mood.
Where i stay up all night
and all that i write is a grey, grey tune…

…pray for me, child —
even a smile would do for now.

T€stS of iLuMIn@ti0n

Have I still got you to be my open door?
Have I still got you to be my sandy shore?
Have I still got you to cross my bridge in this storm?
Have I still got you to keep me warm?

There’s a girl so lonely in the water, longing for the shore.
There’s a fear that’s screaming out inside her
that makes her really pure…

Such a delicate orchid – too beautiful to abandon.

They took your life apart
and called your failures Art.

They were wrong though
they won’t know
till tomorrow…

i got static in my head –
the reflected sound of everything.

Tried to go to where it led
but it didn’t lead to anything.

The noise is coming out
and if it’s not out now

i know it’s just about
to drown tomorrow out.
