lyrics

Out on the barrier of a road stop
We sat and watched the big trucks pass
You said you had a different theory
I put more red wine in your glass

Nothing that is worth some kind of having
Comes to you without some kind of fight
Climbing up and through your window
You watched me fumble in the light

None of this is aimless... maybe what the trick is
Is just let go of what this all must mean
Intensity and focus, the monkeys and the locusts
Put a gentle pull upon the seams

My God you worry like you own them
But I heart the way you overthink
Hold out your bleeding little finger
I’ll run the water in the sink

None of this is fatal… maybe what the trick is
Is just let go of what this all must mean
Intensity and focus, the monkeys and the locusts
Put a gentle pull upon the seams

Now that we’re dazzled in distraction
The cast is caught up in the beat
The driver left the meter running
And slipped away on down the street

None of this is simple… maybe what the trick is
Is just let go of what this all must mean
Intensity and focus, the monkeys and the locusts
Put a gentle pull upon the seams
