Lyrics

modern life

the highway's always humming
even in the early morning
like a turban of bees
wrapped around my head

endless blooming machinations
tumble into pre-dawn kitchens
Tokyo to Alabama
greet the brand new day

once we drifted high enough
to look down on a school
of human fishes floating in formation
pulsing like a tide

astounded and confounded
by the velvet variations
of desire to make
a target of your heart

someone call the doctor
the skin has gone transluscent
and the works have been exposed
for everyone to see

once we drifted high enough
to look down on a school
of human fishes floating in formation
pulsing like a tide

somewhere in this phosphorescent
goo we call a modern life
sits a rusted out controller
hanging on with all her might

the highway's always humming
even in the early morning
like a turban of bees
wrapped around my head
