Fringe 04:20
All the time the entrenched delay All the time they waste away I could talk about the scandal (It’s) More injustice than you can handle There may be lessons to ignore I just don’t pay attention anymore I should think about something new But all my neurons lead back to you You’re the girl on the fringe Don’t you feel just a tinge Of guilt for running free Through your strange anatomy?
Orbiting Amy 04:44
I sit on a chair Thinking about her abstract hair How I want to be In the general vicinity I light a match Just to watch it burn on down I don't understand Why I'm alone When all over town ... Down to the street Wishing she was here with me Scrounge around on the shore Moonbeams refracted into my core Draw lines in the sand Tracing out tomorrow's roots 'Cause I - I'm Orbiting Amy Orbiting her In the most precarious of positions Orbiting her I feel self-exposed by the vision Orbiting her Rotating round ...
