lyrics

A Decent Conversation

There is a silent place
you don't know
and I won't share
because you'd tear it down
in obvious terms and metaphors.

Me, ever poised to be confused
in a dreamless place
with word spirals and conceit spells

And you can ask me
anything you want
but I'll say
' I know you don't want to be here, anyway'
And I'll say 'next time'
I don't know what you mean
-don't ask me.
I don't have what it takes to understand you.

Don't listen to me
I have to say
Indifference in the night
slides a long way.

And you know how it goes
always telling lies
deceive me
there is not one good thing left in you.

And you can ask me
anything you want
but I'll say
'I know you don't want to be here anyway'
And you'll say 'next time'
I don't know what I mean
don't ask me
I don't have what it takes to be with you.

And you can ask me
anything you want
but I'll say
'I know you don't want to be here anyway'
And you'll say 'next time'
You don't know what I mean
please ask me
I don't have what it takes to listen to you.
To understand you.
