Earth Undone

Sitting here in this lonely place
(one more day)
Minute hand sweeps a tired face
(one more day)
Does it know where it's going?
(I can't say)
Can it process its knowing?
(anyway?)
La da da da da da

Does the moon sit idly?
(earth undone)
Sickly light that it cannot make
(gloating sun)
Does it know where it's going?
(circle-sick?)
Can it process its knowing?
(cruelest trick)
La da da da da da

Another lazy day
A Saturday, go out and play
Til daddy calls us inside...

At dinner we'd discuss
The logic of an octopus
Eight arms with nothing to climb...

Back outside, in fact
We'd count the stars till we lost track
The moonlight acts as our guide

Daddy where did you go?
Are you locked in your room again?
We'll wait here til you come out...
The minute drip like a spout...
Counted all the stars then ran out...
And then you never came out...

Laying here in this lonely bed
(one more pill)
Sheets are stained with the dreams I shed
(one more pill)
Tears are soaking the pillow case
(one more still)
Will the pain ever be erased?
(one more pill)
La da da da da da
