Creeping round my house at dawn
I'll keep my curtains closed
If you're feeling fond of feeling wrong
Fully clothed
For a second time you're on my mind
Planted on this still
You forget I do not pay in kind
Kind's not there
For the eyes to see through
All that I do

For instance I don't have to try
I'm falling over all the right lines
We only have to leave this last
Resist all falling at the wrong times


Safe in knowledge, safe in college
I know all there is to know
To have never stepped outside this ring
Fools they flow
For the self-assured I have no cure
I only wish I was
As my entertaining thoughts grow fewer
Stills my cause

For the eyes to see through
All that I do

For instance I don't have to try
I'm falling over all the right lines
We only have to leave this last
Resist all falling at the wrong times

For the accent, for the day (don't walk just swim)
For the incidents they'll happen and they'll happen anyway (it's gonna pass)
When you leave here, leave this way (one last request)
You are far enough to be impressed
But not so far to be depressed
Drink your souvenirs and go your way
For instance I don't have to try
I'm falling over all the right lines
We only have to leave this last
Resist all falling at the wrong times
For instance I don't have to try
I'm falling over all the right lines
We only have to leave this last
Resist all falling at the wrong times
