I don't know just how it started

We got covered up of the sky high

His body and his mind had parted

You can see it happen in his eyes

 

I don't know just what they're for

Cones and rods and bars and arrows

Dots and dashing eyes that roll right into sight and out

Out of control

 

I don't know just what they're there for

Flashing lights and passing mirrors

Dashing eyes with dots that roll right in my mouth and out

Out of control

 

I don't know just how it happened

There was glass in front of the sky high

My body and my face got shattered

I hope I'm together when I die

I been drifting along in the same stale shoes

Loose ends tying the noose in the back of my mind

If you thought that you were making your way

To where the puzzles and pagans lay

I'll put it together: It's a strange invitation

 

When I wake up someone will sweep up my lazy bones

And we will rise in the cool of the evening

I remember the way that you smiled

When the gravity shackles were wild

And something is vacant when I think it's all beginning

 

I been drifting along in the same stale shoes

Loose ends tying the noose in the back of my mind

If you thought that you were making your way

To where the puzzles and pagans lay

I'll put it together: It's a strange invitation
