Step out the front door like a ghost
Into the fog where no one notices
The contrast of white on white

And in between the moon and you
The angels get a better view
Of the crumbling difference between wrong and right

Well I walk in the air between the rain,
Through myself and back again
Where? I don't know

And Maria says she's dying
Through the door, I hear her crying
Why? I don't know

Round here we always stand up straight
Round here something radiates

Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand
She said she'd like to meet a boy who looks just like Elvis
…It’s not me…
And she walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land
Just like she's walking on a wire in the circus
She parks her car outside of my house and
Takes all her clothes off,
Says she's close to understanding Jesus
Yeah but she knows she's more than just a little you know, misunderstood
She has trouble acting normal, well I have trouble acting normal when she's nervous

Round here we are carving
We are carving
We are carving out our names
Round here yeah I know - we all look the same
Round here we talk just like lions
Yeah but we sacrifice just like lambs
Round here she's slipping though my hands

Oh, Sleeping children better run like the wind
Out of the lightning dream
Mama's little baby better get herself in
Out of the lightning

She says, "It's only in my head." yeah
She says, "Shut up, I know, I know this is only in my head."
She said
“Did you think that you were dreaming?”
I said “no”
She said
“Did you think that you were dreaming?”
I said “no”
She said
“Did you think that you were dreaming?”
I said, “Sometimes I don’t know…”

Because, I was out on the radio
Just starting to change
Somewhere out in America,
It’s just starting to rain
Could you tell me one thing you remember about me?
Yeah ‘Cause I was out on the radio
Just starting to change
Somewhere out in America
It was starting to rain
Could you just tell me
One thing
You will remember about me?
Tell me one thing
Tell me one thing
Tell me one thing
That you will remember about me

Sssshhhh…

‘Cause there’s a girl on the car out in the parking lot
And she says: "Man, c’mon, c’mon just take a shot”
She says “Can’t you see me?”
She says “Can’t you see me?”
She says “Can’t you see my walls are tumbling down?”
She said “Can’t you see my walls crumbling down?
And can’t you see my sun’s stopped spinning around?
And can’t you see that sky turn black and brown?
And can’t you see that moon go flashing round?
And can’t you see me?
And can’t you see me?
And can’t you see me?

No.

There’s a girl on the car in the parking lot
Says “Man you should try to take a shot,
Can’t you see me walls are crumbling?”
And she looks up at the building
She says “Hey I’m thinking of jumping”.
She says, “I’m sick and tired of life”
Well everybody’s sick and tired of something!

But round here she is always on my mind
Round here, Hey man, look at me ‘cause I got a lotta a lotta time
Round here we're never sent to bed early
Hey man, nobody makes us wait
Round here we stay up very very very very late

And I said, that I was out on the radio
Just starting to change
Somewhere out in America
It is starting to rain
Could you tell me one thing you will remember
About me?
‘Cause I was out on the radio
Just starting to change
Somewhere out in America
It’s starting to rain
Could you tell me one thing
You will remember about me?
‘Cause I was out on the radio
Just starting to change
Somewhere out in America
It’s starting to rain
can you tell me one thing
You remember about me?

Hey aah, I am fuckin tired! So did you guys know that
this is all being televised tonight? Y’all do?
