Back when we'd just started out Over unfamiliar ground Pulling partners from the sightlines of the crowd You got noticeably focused When I showed and when I spoke So I stayed on And hasn't it all been just a dream? Tapioca sugarcream Take a bow, 'cause it's the best I've ever seen As you got noticeably focused When I said that I smelled smoke and You got noticeably focused When I showed you what you broke But I stayed on Over and through this all again Turn off the lights and be my friend And dream us back to where you thought that we had been As you got noticeably focused When I said that I was hopeless You got noticeably focused When I showed you that our time was up And you know that where we are Shouldn't be so very far 'Cause I'm the devil that you know And not some high school Romeo We took this ride about as far as it could go But you got noticeably focused When I said that I smelled smoke and You got noticeably focused When I showed you that our time was up

Call on me to put out the fire A seasonal hire's all I've ever been I'll just let you down again You tell me that you think me untrue In all that I do Got what you're looking for But I'm already out the door You've got a problem, and I've got the time And you've got a way of keeping people on the line I tear at my headset until I'm hung over and over and over again but now Fill me with red wine and carry me home Put on a phonograph and disconnect the phone It's all that we're good at, I know that you don't want to go but you know what you know so don't Call on me to put out the fire A seasonal hire's all I've ever been I'll just let you down again You tell me that you think me untrue In all that I do Got what you're looking for But I'm already out the door Somewhere between all the signals you send I fall out of favor as I'm falling into bed I stare at the walls as you're calling it off and it's on and it's off and it's on again

Under where you go through the motions and the zones I step outside to put my face back on me Lost without a breath, Cicero frozen in death Come back down and it’s my Tuesday morning Reach that city sound and get it down, get it my way I know you won’t let it get on by me Feed that city’s soul, it’s beautiful, I get in my way Come back baby, baby come back Tried to let it go, put my focus on the show I needed more than you could ever find me ‘Cause once you’ve had enough, you don’t fall back out that much Come back down and put my weight back on me Reach that city sound and get it down, get it my way I know you won’t let it get on by me Feed that city’s soul, it’s beautiful, I get in my way Come back baby, baby come back And I followed you around, to the other side of town Should have known that it was foolish of me ‘Til I walked back through that door, could have been the ocean floor Set our course and I’ll just make you love me Reach that city sound and get it down, get it my way I know you won’t let it get on by me Feed that city’s soul, it’s beautiful, I get in my way Come back baby, baby come back

Whatever happened To positive action? Used to be we’d up and go Turn this whole town out, but now we stay at home So hey, why don’t we go Decide on a sequel? You could be my better half And we could pull ourselves back from the past And the steady-state waves of inherited faith Well, they crackle into static as they’re hitting the tape And if this is not a game then it’s getting too late to go home But instead of getting caught when they turn up the lights On the very last call of a Saturday night I can take a final longshot at getting it right So go home, go home without me Somebody told me There was a land where Every man was cut in two And people’d just as soon throw down as look at you With science and progress Excited and thoughtless How much longer can I feed The daemons of my own apostasy? And the steady-state waves of inherited faith Well, they crackle into static as they’re hitting the tape And if this is not a game then it’s getting too late to go home But instead of getting caught when they turn up the lights On the very last call of a Saturday night I can take a final longshot at getting it right So go home, go home without me And the steady-state waves of inherited faith Well, they crackle into static as they’re hitting the tape And if this is not a game then it’s getting too late to go home But instead of getting caught when they turn up the lights On the very last call of a Saturday night I can take a final longshot at getting it right So go home, go home without me now Go home without me now
