Track #4 on "Binary."


I’ve been thinking about that time down in Mexico
Could’ve been alive or dead, and might have never known
Somewhere down the coast from Santa Rosalia
Poisoning mosquitos with overdoses of tequila

Couple nights I didn’t think you’d see the next
Choking on your vomit like a half-assed Hendrix
Raving at the world with no one there to listen
Trying to tell the stars but they were too distant

Still can’t get your voice out of my head
Singing about living in the land of the dead
Crying to the heavens about hell on earth
Trying to put a price on what our souls (asses) were worth

Marooned for weeks in beach cabana
Surviving on ditch weed and spoiled banana
Conning the tourists and spreading our sadness
You were hiding your habit and the first signs of madness

Oh me and you - we didn’t know the world was split in two
Didn’t know just what we would be getting into
Didn’t know yet that life was suffering
Couldn’t tell that we were smothering
In the smoke of the dying fires of our youth
Didn’t know if we’d been dreaming
When we woke up shaking and screaming
Visited by visions of ruin of mankind
Didn’t know that before we parted
The countdown had already started
On the breaking of our spirits and our bond
Couldn’t see that you’d gone off the rails
And we’d spend our lives chasing our tales
Trying to capture oneness that was two
Heaven and Hell
