Songs > Push the Pig > Lyrics

It only matters if you're gonna count the clock
If we're crawling to a halt
We would feel the air grow thick until the world would sleep

And in the morning you'll be troubled to awake
As your troubles would inflate
But there are limits to the gimmicks that your mind can play

And If you look I'm sure you'd see
Nothing's really as it seems
And soon enough you'd realize
You promise more than you'll provide
The substance that we're hoping for
Will always leave us needing more
We're calloused 'til we cannot feel
The only moments that were real

And let the evening slowly sail itself away
As it violates the day
The consequences can't be fenced in by your neighborhood

So the connections simply have a wait in line
Though we know that we will find
A happy ending for all our friends who never thought they would

And If you look I'm sure you'd see
Nothing's really as it seems
And soon enough you'd realize
You promise more than you'll provide
The substance that we're hoping for
Will always leave us needing more
We're calloused 'til we cannot feel
The only moments that were real
