Jawbox – Spit-Bite lyrics

Real time, is this real time
Or am I just top standby
Watching ceiling lines
Studying blank signs
Downtime, is this downtime
But we're fixing nothing
Just watching plate and fire
That burn first touching
Annealing until flame's beyond concern
Revealing what's only fit to burn
If this was all mine
Any test would be fine
But flames just burn lines
So all I want is to resign
Memory spit-bite wipe it clean
But I need a solvent that's stronger
What passes these lips is so binding
Drawing one to another
