English class, a thousand hands
I give a glance, you take a chance, you're wrong
You blush with pride, at least you tried
You hide your eyes, escape the snide remarks
You say you'll never leave this town
If that's the case then I'll stay put
Cause even here is good when you're around

The doctor's here, we're rife with fear
He says the thing we're most afraid to hear
We'll get through, we always do
I'm trying to convince me more than you
I know that times look bleak
But it's the best of us that brave the weight
When things seem incomplete

A fleeting beat, the prompter beeps
Then like a shriek, it echoes without pause
My eyes deceive, I can't believe
There's no relief, my stomach's in a knot
But I'll calm down real soon
I'm eighty-five, there's not much time
Till I'll be seeing you


from Former Spine, released October 22, 2013
