Slow pose and cross-eyed
Visions owed to the railroad ties
Humpbacks and sugar shacks
Shotgun wed to the poison of our past

A little longer, a little longer to go
We've a little longer, a little longer to go
I just can't help say so
Can't you see me, can't you see me at all?

Interspaced and pie-faced you catch the moon
I'll just stand here and run in place
Shell shocked and half-cocked
The universe is full of black holes and anniversary knots

A little longer to go, we've a little longer
A little longer to go, we've a little longer to go
Can't you see me at all, can't you see me?
Can't you see me at all, can't you see me?
Can't you see me, can't you see me at all?

I'll lay roses at your feet
'Til you decide there is something great in you
I'll lay roses at your feet
'Til you decide there is something great in you

We've only just begun to grieve the space
We've only just begun to grieve the space, the space
We've only just begun to grieve the space, the space
