Myopia 02:59
One of those July days that just about melts your brain I see a mirage and she dissipates, and I find free AC instead I'm messed up in the grocery store comparing microwave meals God I was such a total bore My eyes stopped working for everything else Just a spotlight with you in the middle, I'm happily nearsighted If this was myopia, no one would ever wear glasses I'm stumbling around with my hands and my ears and a perfect view A perfect view A perfect view A perfect view One of those August days that just about melts your brain I kick my sheets off in a sweaty pile, too broiled to sleep I'm fucked up in the liquor store, just, just fucked up I see my mirage there, like everywhere My eyes stopped working for everything else Just a spotlight with you in the middle, I'm happily nearsighted If this was myopia, no one would ever wear glasses I'm stumbling around with my hands and my ears and a perfect view A perfect view A perfect view A perfect view You're more than hot air and light You're more than just a pretty sight You're more than hot air and light You're more than just a pretty sight

They say to dance there must be two must be me and must be you me in black and you in red and what you hear the sound of your fear well it's music to my ears and in this moment you are not ready yet So I call you up and I ask you a question but you don't know how to answer but that's ok because I'm standin here lookin at you wonderin of a way to get through to you And I wonder if three's a crowd or a party There are two of me but there's one of you so let's start it They say it takes two to tango well it takes a lot to arrange all of these consequences and all these dance partner changes Lady in red I pull us cheek to cheek and my face matches your screams and in this moment you have given everything to me So I call you up and I ask you a question but you don't know how to answer but that's ok cause I'm standin here right behind you cockin my head and raisin my hand And I know now that three's a crowd, not a party I prefer my own company so let's get things started

PhDidn't 03:38
You love to put me on your wall so at your dinner parties you can brag and laugh and lie you say I'll do better you say I'm better I say "better than what?" The little jabs, classified ads that you send in the mail I'm not your happy little doctor and never will be the little jabs, classified ads that you send in the mail I don't want what you want and you don't want to hear that You've got the four bedroom house the garage, the garden, the lawn, the neighbor's shittier lawn yeah, you're living the dream but that fantasy, it just it just ain't for me The little jabs, classified ads that you send in the mail I'm not your happy little doctor and never will be the little jabs, classified ads that you send in the mail I don't want what you want and you don't want to hear that My life ain't big enough to cover all that you want My life ain't big enough to cover all that you want My life ain't big enough to cover all that you want My life ain't big enough to cover all that you want
