Winter Grass (2006)

“(Total) Domination”

 

There’s the phone
I guess your calling
Want to know
Are we alright.

All last night I didn’t sleep
Guess that’s nothing new
I meditate, I get afraid
What are we to do?


     I’m not trying for total domination
     No matter what you believe
     So get a hold of your imagination
     I’m just trying to breathe.

I work too hard for my own good
And its not good for you
Although its late I’ll get it straight
So it gets through to you.


Even though
The bright lines are fading
The house holds
Beneath the beacon’s light.

     I’m not trying for total domination
     No matter what you believe
     So get a hold of your imagination
     I’m just trying to breathe.

          Don’t you take my love for granted
          It’s there for you, but don’t demand it

All alone
Feel like I’m falling
Want to know
Are we all right?

All this time I’ve kept the beat
But what is there to show?
I’m movin’ on another dawn
Where’s it going to go?


     I’m not trying for total domination
     No matter what you believe
     So get a hold of your imagination
     I’m just trying to breathe.

     I’m not trying to spin no evocation
     No matter what you believe
     So get a hold of your evaluation
     I’m not trying to leave.
