Like a spider slithering up a wall and through my teeth beneath my skin at the bottom of my feet
My stomach growls to me like Rhythm and Blues bombastic and loose like untied shoes
And then there are my day-dreams of you and you don't know who you are and I ain't ever gonna tell you
It's a red-light being run by a black cat the principle of drama the line that kids cross while they wait for the stop sign to turn green it's what he said or what she said, and every voice inbetween
Now, I know a spider can weave such a web of lies, but isn't the truth thick enough to catch any fly?
But if a fly should decide no longer to hide "it" wouldn't the truth set him free?
In the meantime, I'll day-dream of you and you'll never know who you are and I ain't ever gonna tell you
It's like a reflection being shattered by a mirror the principle of self-esteem and what's left of it bleeding on the bathroom floor it's a silhouette of a spider, who looks like a man feels like a woman, but breathes like a human being
And it yearns to be the fly on the wall it wants to spread its wings all over you or maybe dance to some Rhythm and Blues then trip over his untied shoes I can't escape my day-dreams of you ...
And you don't know who you are and you'll never know how you make me feel because I'll always hide "it" and I'll never know myself because I'm too afraid to run a red-light or cross one of those lines or I'm too afraid of what he'll say or what she'll sayor one of those voices inbetween and then you'd day-dream of me
I'd be the vague memory of the boy who sat adjacent to you some 20 years ago while learning geometry and you never knew who I was because I never bothered to let "it" show
I always figured there'd be a tommorrow I mean...
Maybe one day I'll...
