lyrics

I know I’ve been out of touch; I’m still with ya
Stepped back enough to see the whole picture, been
Fixated on all of the things that just clutter my mind
And the fluidity of time

I wanted to fast forward, but baby
You’d only see me crooked
(So crooked)
But if ever I asked for it, just maybe
You’d book it

I know that I’m kinda strange, but I listen
I know how the wind can change
And I’m done, done pissin’ in it
So jaded from all the dissembled little symbols and signs
And this inability of mine

To be present
(And just be aware)
Give all I’ve got to give
It’s not pleasant
(Not fair)
And you’re bad enough as is

I wanted to fast forward, but baby
You’d only see me crooked
(Crooked)
But if ever I asked for it, just maybe
You’d book it

It’s alright
You can tell them if you’re frightened
Just be honest
And don’t pretend that you’re enlightened
Promise…

I’m not into hurrying; I’m busy
Too busy worrying “who is he?”
Frustrated with the reason and rhyme
‘Cos I’m analytically inclined

I wanted to fast forward, but baby
You’d only see me crooked
(And then I’d have to explain it)
But if ever I asked for it, just maybe
You’d book it
