It streams and you latch onto it and off you go

And all that you know is half witted

 

Someday when the stereotypes come true

I'll surprise you honey

One day when the stars are all in line

I'll make gospel of the cliches

 

So come on over baby paint my eyes

Oh you're illustrious

You know every body hurts until it cries

And if its everybody it must be us

 

I came up empty

Like an open string of pearls

You know a line is not a loop

It can't contain you

 

It streams and you latch onto it and off you go

And all that you know is half witted

Believe in everything that you see

Know what you know, commit to it

 

It streams and you latch onto it
