when the world is going blank
slowing down to a crawl
you've had all the baths you can usefully take
the paper says nothing at all

watch the clock, count the moments
moving on to 4 pm
try in vain to count your blessings
feel the malaise drag you in

if you could do it all over again
what would you decide
do you think that there's something out there
that's better than life

when the salmon of doubt is rising
and it sticks to your skin
you're growing eyes in the back of your head
and you keep on needles and pins

do you ever wonder whether
you could stand outside yourself
someone special, someone real
would you rather be someone else

when the weather is taking prisoners
there's a realization
you know in your heart you're gonna live forever
can't imagine a worse situation

do you ever wonder whether
you're gonna pay for the time you stole
as you tumble, will you enter
the long dark tea time of the soul


from One Left Turn, released December 31, 2012
