When Adam's plane went down in Rome
I thought I was the last to see him
Standing all alone on the sidewalk
Maybe I was too young to know
Maybe I saw a bit of me in him
And in the strange wind whipping all around us
We began ordinary citizens
Washed up and so what?
Into Your Alien Arms
Space shuttle set down
In front of my mobile home
Where's the city plan?
Right there, undocumented
Our first encounter
Was criminally left off
I've fallen into your alien arms
In A Motel
And so I left when I was just a boy.
I swore I'd simply do it all over again.
And now up the hill with snow-bit,
Blue-tipped fingers, blood from falling,
But I can't go back there no more
In frozen poses, venues lined with pillows,
Atlas shouldered some silly blunder or other
You ask for more than this,
But I don't know what more than this is.
The glory of a misspent youth
Chasing tire stains in muted thunder
Trading sex for drugs
And my Ophelia does not drown
She just barely hangs on
Now driving drunk in Daddy's car
Honey, I won't spoil the ending
But see that bend up in the road
Didn't it seem that the night was little too quiet?
The Witness' Dull Surprise
Oh well, the rain it never stops here
Is it strange that I no longer see the hand in front of my face?
Just short of longing for the past
And short of asking for forgiveness
You read my palm and suggested that I find a new apartment
All of our sleepless nights came crashing through the window
Now you know
What it means to fly
Now you understand
