Liner Notes: 

This song is the last in a morphing chain that began with my song "flicker" from the beginning of July 2019. This was my original take at the song. I eventually introduced the chord progression to the Catalytic Perverters and we recorded it as "day drinking."

This song was my original acoustic version. I had some other ideas for the lyrics, doing some tricky redacting words in "flicker" from lines of spittybooms song that I was morphing, and only using an words that were left from "flicker." More work than it sounds confusing. I ended up just reusing the words from "flicker." The form of the two songs was remarkably similar, so I only had to flip the last two stanzas to make the lyrics work without effort.

Lyrics: 

Dark 'fore dawn, awake from sleepish stealing
with no alarm, just an anxious feeling
mourning light, furtive, fleeting flicker
coming night, talk, talk, tick ticker

Start my day, days keep going faster
break my fast, recipe for disaster
shutting in, wondering what comes after?
maybe tears mixed up with laughter

I've been told, but I don't know
if it's lies or if it's so
untangling reason from the rhyme
of whether I can see or if I'm blind

Trapped inside, head case humiliation
wasting time, failing at all relations
know what's right, still just feel complacent
pushing rope a waning preoccupation

Days go by, just keep going noward
false starts, shaky and stumbling backward
shadows grow, sunset, light is fading
to dusky sight or vision failing?

I've been told, but I don't know
if it's lies or if it's so
untangling reason from the rhyme
of whether I can see or if I'm blind

If I'm blind and just hallucinating sight
If I'm blind...

If I'm blind
If I'm blind...

I've been told, but I don't know
if it's lies or if it's so
untangling reason from the rhyme
of whether I can see or if I'm blind

Dark 'fore dawn, awake from sleepish stealing
with no alarm, just an anxious feeling
mourning light, furtive, fleeting flicker
coming night, talk, talk, tick ticker
