lyrics

I have many faces
And darling here's one:
Pick it up and put it down,
Spin it all the way around--
Is there a center?

You spun me like a compass,
But you'll never know your way around
Without a reference

Birds in flapping clusters swim like shadows on a wall;
One mind, one single-celled impromptu game of call and response

I'm looking for what's timeless
Out of the corner of my eye,
Beyond the borders of my sight,
But not my mind

Ahh-la-la-la light to dark is the same
Until you give it a name and root it up,
Pull it out of the ground--
What have you found?

Birds in flapping clusters swim like shadows on a wall;
One mind, one single-celled impromptu game of call and response

I'm burrowing through concrete on the railway
A million pairs of conscious eyes
None of them can realize me,
The essence of me,
Behind the faces they see;
We're all just a bunch of little universes
Woven up in space and time
