lyrics

Don't work yourself up over nothing
Don't try to read too much between the lines
Don't show your hand upon your face
Deny a soul a saving grace
Drop out of the human race
One more time

Don't you look just like a vision
With those conspiratory eyes?
Don't I seem to be
Punch-drunk on eternity?
Trumped up on a felony
For grabbing what's in front of me

But, don't stop
Moving those fingers up and down my spine
Don't stop
Just for this moment take it as a sign
Feels so good when you lay your hands upon
You consecrate my clouded mind
Let's see if we can find the time to

Is this love just a chemical reaction?
Would it matter if it was?
Is my need for you
A logical progression
Or just justification
For what the animal inside me wants to do?

Let's have a communication breakdown
Let's take this labyrinthine existence
And lose it for a little while
We have got to have a communication breakdown
Let's make a point of our persistence
In the belief that things don't have to be so complicated all the time
Say we never heard of such absurdities
As words to match the melodies
Of selfish, sophist soliloquies

Don't stop
Moving those fingers up and down my spine
Don't stop
The only thing we have to lose is time
Feels so good when you lay your hands upon
And consecrate my clouded mind
Let's see if we can find the time to
