Where the Spirit Left Us - text

*momentálně videoklip není k dispozici*

Through the wall in a soft spring rustle
Or street-side selling some summer hustle
And across the Maple Street Bridge in a bristling fall, whistling
All's a balled up riddle, just a high snowball
In a curve-and-fall through a parking lot at Christmas
I heard her whisper
I heard him call
Here's what the gist was:

Only wary in our lives
Open-eyed and half-ashamed that is to say
A float on a ferry, freezing, tired, fully wired, a total waste
That's where the spirit left us

Underneath the house
Like a flameout teen who smells like sweat and gasoline
Kid, I stand with you
And when you're hard and your eyes get mean because you're on the march
Well, I could almost kiss you
Don't let them twist you
Here, you can have this song - you can take it with you

Stay lonely, open-wide
Your eyes afire, your mind aflame
Don't be disgraced
Loose of limb, unlionized, while all liars fade to gray
I know you feel detested

Did a silence drop? Did your Walkman stop?
Did the air turn cold?
Was the message just so close?
But did you choke it?
Oh, kid, I know
I know where this is going
We always blow it

Only wary in our lives
Open-eyed and half-ashamed that is to say
A float down that deep river, freezing, tired, fully wired, a total waste
That's where the spirit left us

Your eyes all fire, your mind aflame
As this sobbing world goes screaming by
And I swear that, if I had my way
You know I would have blessed it
