lyrics

There is a Pennyroyal pebble placed precariously on point.
And if you don't get that statement c'mon man hit this joint...
I say a lot of shit often enough that the loudness often drown itself out.
And all I'm left with is stuttering parts which put most people out.

Sing okay?

My friend he has the vowels wrapped up in his tongue,
and when he finally gets them unraveled it helps him to get along
but me I'm left with all the consonants constantly sucking on.
Hard edges, hard edges of words which worm their way to the front
and puts most people off.

Sometimes I like to watch you, watch you while you sleep.
I think of all the opposites of those tender movements and,
you look out the window instead of at me.
and I can't even speak.
and actually I've been worn pretty thin.
thanks again for letting me in.

I end up creating a multiverse in my head
on the right side of my bed
And your still asleep, and I can't breathe.
And I can't help but listen to you breathe in.
And I've probably written down more than I should.
And I can't sleep.
And i can't sleep,
sleep alone.
Hope you don't mind the tone.
And I can't even close my eyes.
