A Change In Temperature

It feels like a memory even when you’re living in it

And the lithium treatment fades

 The way it looks, dear, we must’ve forgot to remove our shades
And it feels so heavy, this unbearable lightness of being
Life is elsewhere, I don’t know what I’m seeing
But it feels like a fracture, then grows like a fraction
Increasing friction, I wish it were fiction
And I don’t know or not if I’m sure but I can’t keep trying to trick
myself into believing I don’t need
A Change In Temperature

​I forget the reasons, but remember the rhymes
I’m not scared of anything, but I get so frightened sometimes
And I asked to come here, now I want to get out of town
‘Cause I can’t stand the sun, and the rain gets me down
Just makes me fritter for worse or for better
I’m craving sweet, and getting bitter
And I don’t know or not if I’m sure but I can’t keep trying to trick
myself into believing I don’t need
A Change In Temperature

​ Flat, Flat, Flat, Flat on Friday
Sharp, Sharp, Sharp, Sharp on Saturday
Never Natural

​ The bigger the crowd, the more I’m alone
I’m gonna build Benares and burn down Rome
And I get this hostility to any dependency
I want to know everything and still keep the mystery
I’ve got no more room, yet there’s a vacancy
And I don’t know or not if I’m sure but I can’t keep trying to trick
myself into believing I don’t need
​ A Change In Temperature


And I don’t know or not if I’m sure but I can’t keep trying to trick myself into believing I don’t need ​
