Mote Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

When you feel the spiral turnin' for you alone
And you feel so heavy that you just can't stop it
When a sea of madness turns you into stone
A picture of your life shoots like a rocket, all the time

Put "Me" in the equation, it's alright
I've seen you movin' in and out of sight
My friends tell me it'll all cut through you
From nowhere, to nowhere
Cut together, cuttin' through

I'm island-bound, a mote inside my eye
And I can't see you breathing as before
I am airless, a vacuum child
And I can't stand to reason at your door, in this time

Put "Me" in the equation, it's alright
I've seen you movin' in and out of sight
My friends tell me it'll all cut through you
From nowhere, to nowhere
Cut together

I'm down in the daytime, out of sight
Comin' in from dreamland, I'm on fire
I can see it's all been here before
Dream a dream that lies right at your door

When the seasons circle sideways out of turn
And words don't speak, just fall across the carpet
You're just in time to watch the fires burn
It seems a crime but your face is bright, you love it, all the time

Songwriters
GORDON, KIM / RANALDO, LEE M. / SHELLEY, STEVEN JAY / MOORE, THURSTON JOSEPH
