  • Slow-poked and cross-eyed
    Pigeon-toed to the railroad ties
    Hump-backed and sugar shacked
    Shotgun wed to the poison of all that

    A little longer, a little longer to go
    We've a little longer, a little longer to go
    I just can't help say so

    Can't you see me?
    Can't you see me at all?

    Inner spaced and pie-faced
    You catch the moon i'll just stand here and run in place
    Shell-shocked and half-cocked
    The universe is full of black holes and anniversary knots

    A little longer to go
    We've a little longer, a little longer to go
    We've a little longer to go

    Can't you see me at all?
    Can't you see me?
    Can't you see me at all?
    Can't you see me?
    Can't you see me? can't you see me at all?

    I'll lay roses at your feet till you decide there is something great in you
    I'll lay roses at your feet till you decide there is something great in you

    We've only just begun to grieve the space
    We've only just begun to grieve the space
    we've only just begun to grieve the space
