now, i don't care about the 1s or the 2s or the 3s or the 4s
on the clocks anymore now, baby
sometimes i get bold and stick my hand in the fire
it's a helpful reminder & the only thing that saves me.

hey Debra downer
you're my new moon, and i'm your son
but we both cannot be young
& still... you're playin with your barbies again...
so i left you on the floor
gave you a light kiss on your very heavy head...
and put my childhood to bed.

hey michael, michael
we were just boys when we heard of god
and now you've found what i have not
but i was gonna lose you all along...
oh, my heartbeat lets me know...
if the conversation goes.. to the place that i call god...
when i'm inspired by the words.. that you gave me!

things are happening.. all around me...that i don't quite i keep.. i keep runnin'... runnin' towards the high.. the high ground... keeping my eye on.. the horizon.. til i have reached the point where i become the one who can explain the point.

nature or nuture---i wouldn't wanna hurt ya
no i i i ...i am a bastard, nothing more...
& my father was the eye of the proselytizing storm
and this error-filled comedy has always followed me around...
oh but, i get the joke now, ha ha. ha ha ha ha

oh my my... will you take care of me?
all i really need is a proper goodbye.
