A Matter of Some Conjecture

lyrics

Hear you breathing inside,
on this carnival ride,
oh these lights seem so bright, to adjust
your menzizi blues
have an aura removed
see your silhouette move, to adjust to me too.

There were pictures of you I could buy.
There were prizes all novelty sized.
There’s no crime at the carnival, crime at the carnival,
and we’ll never make it outside.

I can’t breathe, I can’t sleep, I can’t eat.
I’m helpless, believe me.
You can keep me here.

See your halogen eyes,
smiling back into mine,
just a measurable size to adjust
to the carnival glow,
making saints of us both,
in my mirrored eyes shown, to adjust to me too.

There were pictures of you I could buy.
There were prizes all novelty sized.
There’s no crime at the carnival, crime at the carnival,
and we’ll never make it outside.

I can’t breathe, I can’t sleep, I can’t eat.
I’m helpless, believe me.
You can keep me here.

I can’t breathe, I can’t sleep, I can’t eat.
I’m helpless, believe me.
You can keep me here.

Comparisons to Leonard Cohen, Violent Femmes and the Barenaked Ladies have been met with confused stares.
