this song was written for the same person as o-mouthed who may as well remain nameless


so there was to be no playing
a certain sequence hit the sky
there was to be the nailed-down feeling
indeed a science in his eye
and i guess that i go in all directions
i'm in the clouds
and he'll find out
that i didn't mean to be so smart
this part of sorry is only a start

don't go taking the lyric out of the song
you know that's very bad and wrong
