Some plans were made and rice was thrown
A house was built, a baby born
How time can move both fast and slow amazes me
And so I raise my glass to symmetry
To the second hand and its accuracy
To the actual size of everything
The desert is the sand

You can't hold it in your hand
It won't bow to your demands
There's no difference you can make
There's no difference you can make
And if it seems like an accident
A collage of senselessness
You weren't looking hard enough
I wasn't looking hard enough

An argument for consciousness
The instinct of the blind insect
Who makes love to the flowerbad
And dies in the first freeze
I want to learn such simple things
No politics, no history
So what I want and what I need
Can finally be the same
I just got myself to blame
Give everything up to fate
When there's choices I can make
When there's choices I can make
Now my heart needs a polygraph
I'm so eager to pack my bags
When I really want to stay

The arc of time, the stench of sex
The innocence you can't protect
Each quarter note, each marble step
Walk up and down that lonely treble clef
Each one and the next one
Each one and the next one to arrive

An argument for consciousness
The instinct of the blind insect
Who never thinks not to accept
His faith, that's faith
There's happiness in death
You get to the next one
You get to the next on down the line

When levity, I'm longing that
It steals each dream inside my head
My morning water don't forget
On silver stars I wish and wish and wish
From one to the next one
From one to the next right down the line
