For the time being, expect more "song lyrics serve as window into inner thoughts" entries for a while, until I sort some things out. Here's a particularly apt one that popped up on my iPod this morning.

"Close of the Day"-- Grey Eye Glances, Painted Pictures, 1998 (hidden track)
Tell me, your fields are aflower with poppies posing
and tell me, they've been waiting for hours
for the close of the day
Tell me, do you seize the emotions
fading murmurs (anyone home?)
Tell me I've got magical potions rising from the gramophone
So you say you want me
So you say you need me
Would you say you'd follow me through all the confusion?
Falling flowers fade away
So you think that you just may
come in time to leave before I sense the intrusion?

[Refrain]
God help me if I get there long before you
and find a way to build a fence without you
and hide in places where I keep me from you

Tell me nothing's lost on the journey
I lost track so long ago and
Tell me to ignore every warning,
shooting sparks on barren coast
So suppose it's real to you
So suppose I feel it too
Every indication leading back to whence from where it came
All the peace that we had found
was left there on the proving ground
in the place where destiny had once played her vision game

[Refrain]
God help me when I get this way when all the calm
within is inside out and all I feel is numb
God help me when I get this way
and think that we have nothing left to say
'Cause I want you to stay because you want to
I want you to stay because you need to
I want you to stay and not have to ask you

[kick-ass instrumental interlude]

But you're talking to me and you're telling me everything you think I should know
You're talking at me and you're telling me, "One more thing before I have to go"
And you're telling me I should be careful, I could get hurt
But I thought if I changed the room around
something would give but nothing did
And all I'm left with is an unfamiliar place to lay my head
and in this place where I have made my bed,
he seeps me into my dreams and says he has nothing left to give,
so I suppose the time has come to live

[Refrain]
God help me when I get this way when all the calm
within is inside out and I feel is numb
God help me when I get this way
and think that we have nothing left to say
'Cause I want you to stay because you want to
I want you to stay because you need to
I want you to stay and not have to ask you
