lyrics

Just another night
Just another crowded room
With people I don't mind
Their faces blur after a while
Maybe it's the color of the moonlit trees
Glowing like a gun that's just been fired
Maybe it's the way the wind is howling through the sky
But i can't
Seem to get you off my mind

Waiting for a taxi
A girl stands in the rain
Sitting in the backseat
I hear all about her escapades
Her eyes are made of plastic
She's Ophelia in the flesh
Her missionary mouth now starts to smile
But even as her lips are waxing and waning in the night
I can't
Seem to get you off my mind

In the swarming hall I thought I saw you
But all I saw was mad pursuit
In garlands dressed
Which is second to best

Somewhere in the the streets
I hear the song of you
Never canst thou kiss nor trees be bare no nothing's new
Every single word is feeding life into flame
Forever young
Forever stuck in time
But something still is missing in these fragile, fleeting rhymes
Cuz I can't
Seem to get you off my mind
No matter how hard I try
Thou bride of silence and slow time
