Walkin down the sidewalk and there’s cracks all by my feet
Grass is tryin’a grow through but it’s still to small to see
I think about my mind and how it’s similar to this
How all the stuff inside becomes lost in an abyss

I sift and sift and sift and sift and can’t come up with gold
I worry that this will repeat itself until I’m old
I call my lover on the phone, he doesn’t pick up then
He’s busy working while I’m at home slaving to my pen

I toss and turn for hours it’s another sleepless night
Thoughts composed of everything and anything in sight
When bed cannot console you it seems that few things can
When night betrays you nothing’s left; you’re left alone to fend

But worry not my lonely child; you’ll make it through these hours
You’ll look back on this lonely night and you will feel empowered
Daddy’s on the porch sanding down the stain
Mommy’s cleaning all the floors and all the windowpanes

Sometimes I just disappear, I can’t detect my space
I look into a mirror scanning for a trace
All I see are hints and clues, the lines around my eyes
Hinting at a time that I laughed or I cried


Don’t look now you’re growing up, you’ll be a big girl soon
And in time you won’t have to live in this tiny room
Walking down the jetty to the farthest rock I can
It’s funny how you feel far out while still next to the land

Fog consumes me and my view I’m drifting far away
Drifting far away
Drifting far away…
Fog consumes me and my view I’m drifting far away
And as far as I’m concerned this world has passed away
