Destroy Me

from Brain EP by Once And Future Band

/

lyrics

ticking off the days of the calendar
watching them fall away

in a neat little pile on the kitchen shelf
next to the microwave

you walk in and I look away
hoping to disappear

if I meet yr eyes then it multiplies
til’ yr kindness draws me near

skipping ahead in a mystery
to know how the deed was done

I was shocked to see when the killer went free
the detective ate his gun

there was blood on the wall
and a curtain call
as I planned my escape

like a diamond shines in the darkest mine
the spotlight found my face

destroy me
tin toy me
or so they say
one time he
let tiny dreams slip away

ticking off the days of the calendar
watching the numbers fade

and they blow around the room
like a burst balloon still trying to fly away

there’s a hole in the sky where you go when you die
I hear good things happen there

we could leave today
but I forgot the way
it was written on the air

destroy me
tin toy me
or so they say
one time he
let tiny dreams slip away
