Phono Mind

lyrics

I was alone then
Up in my room, picturing everything
In alignment
I wasn't listening
To a record below the needle's steadfast flow
Yet skipping
And like death in a dream you had left the scene before impact

Farewell I bade it, feels like I wasted
Every single minute wishin you were walkin just around the corner
All I ever wanted was a world where I could make you the answer
But yes, I guess it's not the worst or best situation (coulda been worse)
Every single day I spent away was gettin me nowhere
My mind unwinds to the moment when it finally ended
O the moment it ended
The moment it ended
The record keeps spinnin

I heard a voice comin out the speakers
I felt the wind howlin in, it was drownin out the preachers
I saw the stage, so I picked up a beatup guitar
And I lost my age in the soundwaves cause I couldn't keep my eyes off a scar
My scar

Every single minute wishin you were walkin just around the corner
All I ever wanted was a world where I could make you the answer
Every single day I spent away was gettin me nowhere
My mind unwinds to the moment when it finally ended
The moment it ended
The record keeps spinnin

A great wind came and went
Was not God though, wasn't God
An earthquake came and went
It was not God though, it wasn't God
A fire came, fire blazed
Was not God though
It wasn't.
