Making Circles Square

lyrics

Lift my bloody face

off the table

You're readin' it wrong

We're all in this together

We're all in this as feathers

Up and Away.

So roll me up a cliff

that isn't stable

It's so precious how

Impossibility's nurtured

When our volatility's perfect

Up and Away
and I thank those who came first

So I go in town to find

a new start

The hooker's polite,
but 
I'm not interested darlin'.

I've got a pattern of fallin'

Up and Away

So I thank all those who came first

'cuz they've no idea what they've gotten into.

I try but I fail consistently

There's gotta be somethin' I'm missing,

Should we call it a day like that? 

cuz I feel

sicker than hell

and I know we aint done yet.

It's like home on the range

High again,

The stones in my brain

Stop readin' the bad news

and don't hide in the bedroom

From your scars

So lift my battered face

off this table

and calm the fuck down

I don't get why we care

We're making circles square

aren't we?

and I thank all those who came first

cuz they've no idea what they've gotten into

I try but I fail consistently

There's gotta be somethin' I'm missing,

Should we call it a day like that? 

cuz I feel

sicker than hell

and I know we aint done yet

I know we ain't done yet

and I thank all those who came first

cuz they've no idea what I'm

about to do

I try but I fail consistently,

There's gotta be something I'm missing

Should we call it a day like that?

Like that?

Like that?

I feel

sicker than hell

and I know we aint done yet....

....tell me why we aint done yet?
