lyrics

Why can’t I do what you tell me to?
Flicker on your Flickr account, expand and softly glow
while I hide and refuse to come out before the sun hangs low.
And so you go and post and post on matters which do matter most
and a holy ghost is coming close with pointed hand at empty host.
There’s no escaping this.
This is emptiness
and unhappiness
and wastefulness.
But you can find such peaceful bliss as long as you remember this:
Why can’t I do what you tell me to?
Earth angel, earth angel: I love you!!!
There’s soft light bending the trees, the morning is seeping through.
A swirling blend of the yard and me, a chorus of early hues.
So, no more aches and no more fears
and no more rides through nauseous years.
Just sitting in bed with skies so clear
and flickering light is finally here.
So I’ll light the door. I’ll light the door. Yeah, I’ll light the door.
I'LL LIE!!!
