This song is about being lonely, and a little bit about Chris Toye...


It was dark and late that night
your words took away my sight
now i cannot gaze apon your face

the time has clearly made you change
your personality, thoughts , your ways
you're not the person that you used to be

i've changed too, i think, i'm sure,
now you're gone and you were the cure
to the fatigue and to my monstrosity

now all my fields are black and white
the dusk is dawn and wrong is right
and i died for love at 3 am that night

the trees will grow to shaded peaks
but you wont hear that old man speak
he's never been the same since then
since the night they called it quits
i don't care to put a name on it
he's never been the same since then
and he'll never be the same again.

well martha jones and mr frost
did they find each other or stay lost?
gives me hope that il never love again

but one more time, it couldn't hurt
to laugh and smile and feel and flirt
and fill my pockets up with sand and dirt

cuz i'm the keyboard gathering dust
play me sweetly and in you i'll trust
all the things that i cud never tell

il bite your lip and kiss your neck
but still remain a fucking wreck
and tell my tales on the bass and treble clef

comrades please avert your eyes
he's not a man but a boy disguised
with a temper he could never choke

so with mothers care and fathers wit
he makes the choice to stand not sit
boy i have no time for jokes

il shine the pane so you see past
the indifference of this crystal glass
it keeps me on a wooden floor

so give it 40 years or more
to either be safely on the shore
or drowning in a lake as deep as whores.
drowning in a lake as deep as whores
