I'm in one mind to lose my sight
My brain ain't what it's been
I find no sense in consciousness
So I've taken to routine
My name don't say a lot 'bout me
It paints more than I can hold
So people think the best of me
And watch as I unfold

Fingers in the engine, now
Faces in the sky
The washing line spins in time
To some wicked nurs'ry rhyme
And I catch the sun
As it catches you upon the head
And in my mind I watch you die
While you watch me sleepin' instead

Well, open up the coffee, dear
There's somethin' I first need to do
And put some on while I am gone
And grab some cups for two
Just think, it's been a long, long time
Since whatever it was I said
Would ever be the death of me
And I can't live with this regret
