lyrics

when the light shines up from the quicksand
you were quicker than a lightning bolt
faster than the trial

your book learning never got you anywhere
you were raised by an ever-present everywhere
always in denial

the songs that saved you
were written in a shaky hand
the deserts that graved you
didn’t have a single grain of sand

now i’m sitting on a little patch of asphalt
on an island in the middle of the universe
just working on my tan

when does anyone have time to do anything
most the time i just sit and let the phone ring
but on the other hand

the songs that saved you
were written in a shaky hand
the deserts that graved you
didn’t have a single grain of sand

if the darkness blew up like a cannonball
I would hold you with my ears on fire
back against the wall

we could talk ‘bout the space in between us
all the spaces inside of everything
that make us what we are

the songs that saved you
were written in a shaky hand
the deserts that graved you
didn’t have a single grain of sand

if I trace out the edges
cut out the middle part
leave you with a frame

would you grasp at the corners
fill in the emptiness
take away the blame

the songs that saved you
were written in a shaky hand
the deserts that graved you
didn’t have a single grain of sand
