we look up at the sky watching planes storm the moon
swarm around it like flies over fog cutting through
and I don't think of stories, I don't think of truth anymore

they all think that it's strange doing nothing at all
but I guess people change and I don't think it's wrong
I don't think of the past or hang things on my wall anymore

the paint could peel back and the ceiling could fall
and the air could combust and the night could dissolve
with one blow to the brain I could forget my name and age
looking out into the dark I could see anything

we open the shades and the morning is bright
she has nothing to say and she sits for a while
till the walls start to slip and my mind starts to give itself away

Catherine saw god when she stared at floor
but a god that is known is no god anymore
and she knows it's alright, there's no need to worry today
(looking out into the dark I could see anything)
