Lyrics

ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL

 

Got tired of holding the cradle

Wept like a babe, wanted the ground to be stable

Cos you’re hot stuff and you can’t afford to spill on the ground

 

We fortified

Secured all the lines

Gave our phones juice

‘Cause what’s the point of anything if you can’t prove

to the many humans scrolling that it ever really happened?

 

Chorus

I saw him run into the lightening

Now I said it aloud and that makes it real

And I’m close to deciphering

How the guy survived as it’s clear he was asleep at the wheel

 

Verse

Hear you me, it’s a hidden affliction

But you know it’s okay ‘cause everyone has this addiction

To the same kinds of neon signs

An electric storm

 

I’ll be notified when I turn forty-five

That my mother is hanging on for dear life

Can’t talk, can’t move any parts save her fingers

And Lord knows she can type – ttttt typettttt typettttt typettttt type

 

Chorus

I saw him run into the lightening

Now I said it aloud and that makes it real

And I’m close to deciphering

How the guy survived as it’s clear he was asleep at the wheel

 

 

MILLION YEARS

You look like a man who’s lived and seen a million years

Did the time pass slow?

Did you go very far in your search through the stars

for that girl you used to know?

 

I won’t despair because you belong there

In the space between the nightmares

When I’m too tired, too tired to feel

But I’m still trying, I’m still trying

To figure out what was real

 

If I take you back to a time before you were a slave to the chase

And winding back the clock to moments gone

Would it be the same or would it drive you insane

To know that you can’t change what was wrong?

 

Constellations, consolations, must we all wait in patience

For the blind eyes, blind eyes to see –

Beyond the pain that someone’s saying:

‘Let it all go, and start to breathe’

 

Moving faster, late night laughter

I don’t want to cease, but if the volume increases

There’s a chance they will hear

And you can’t spend the night here you know

You know

 

If I take you back to a place where I said it wasn’t cold

But I embraced you, we breathed easy for a while

If I take you back to the dark

Swimming, I bring up Jaws and we see sharks

And the horror movie starts

 

Oo Oo Oo
