lyrics

I never knew that I'd let me go this far.
I never knew that I'd let me see your cards.
I never knew lights left scars.
I never knew, through the radar.

Over your heads,
I'll be listening.
My palaces reigned o'er Reds,
mildly glistening,

but you want me dead,
and you never miss.
You want my head --
want my abacus, Atticus.
You want me dead, and you never miss.
You want my head --
want my abacus, Atticus Finch.

I never took Pikes in turn to charge.
I never took Church in my backyard.
I never knew these rights had guards.
I never knew, through the radar.

I need you to tell me
that you've stopped,
and you'll never start again
to tell me that you've stopped,
and you'll never start
to tell me that you've stopped,
and you'll never start again
to tell me that you've stopped,
and you'll never start.

You want me dead,
and you never miss.
You want my head --
want my abacus, Atticus.
You want me dead, and you never miss.
You want my head --
want my abacus, Atticus Finch.

Opening with the imagery of dreams, the project folds a low-fidelity envelope around questions at the interface of passion & reason: Can two agents connect while apart? What is the historicity of one? How does fear become paranoia, and discovery seizure? ... more
