  • Call me disruptive say I break your concentration
    Familiar patterns like waves that break too fast
    What do you do when it's so brand new that it kills you?
    Came on too strong couldn't stand it slow
    Now I know

    She can knock me back like a champ
    Disembodied ringlets from hair that look like yours
    Call me the looming shapes of winter dusk impending
    She barely fits inside my head but I feel something

    Every element but one is in my thrall
    Stop traffic as I lie down in your footpath
    Like a simile I paint suggestive pictures
    Disembodied ringlets from hair that looked like yours

    Call me the looming shapes of winter dusk impending
    Call me freaky
    Call me childish
    Call me Ishmael
    Just call me back
    Call me back
    Call me back and I'll follow you around

    I forget what my friends look like and they forget why they like me
    But that's old hat.
    I'm so happy.
    How do you write about that?
    Disembodied ringlets Writer/s: AARON HUFFMAN, EVAN SULT, JEFF LIN, SEAN NELSON
