lyrics

Forget the forms when you’re absorbed in the meanings
the unseen filling up like a gas pump fueling the spirit
riding the body to nearest subway station
you are the train of intoxication leaving at noon for the Truth
hidden behind questions lingering in your mind
the forgotten whisper in time of who you are
who you are is not what they tell you to be
not what you see when you bleed colors that fade from a canvas of forms
so i say forget the forms, forget the norms, as you remember digging deeper
like sand through the fingers
like the sea that lingers
like Love...


Little boxes in line
drawing circles
but they never seem to fit right
i never seem to fit right
in my
little box of mine.

And i just can’t quit
this addiction to my head
it still pounds, pounds, pounds
no changing all the voices up in here
i’ve got my
little box of fear

And desperately am i trying to draw
these circles in my heart
concentric circles of love around you
around me

Marching in line are we individuals?
are we equal as we step
left, right, left, right, left, right
to a step of our own
but why do i feel
so alone

And desperately am i trying to draw
these circles in my heart
concentric circles of love around you
around me

Little boxes in line
drawing circles
but they never seem to fit right
i never seem to fit right
in my
little box of mine...got your...little car little box, little tv little box, little mind little box...little box little box.
