lyrics

Last day in LA and I've been wondering
Why would anybody come back here?
Bloody Mary Mother in the mirrorball
I need a morning-after pill, I fear

If I could see you, like you see you… I'd see through you
I'd see - all the way through to you

I have never been the superstitious type
But I do believe in resonance
Be careful not to line your hopes or desires up
Too eagerly or circumspect
One day everyone here will resonate
When the earth gives way and sucks ’em in

“Through the tiny glass mouth
of the life in which we reside
we can see the world above”
(Gu Cheng, 1980; translated by Joseph R. Allen, 2005)
