lyrics

Override

I heard there was an explosion
There were no survivors
On your little island
A line we couldn’t cross
And I knew how to avoid you
At least while you needed space
I was under the impression that you cared about these things

Aphrodite, she knew what was up then
She could turn a corner and everyone would see
And Zeus was a guy that everyone loved
He could playa song that would make you dream

And it isn’t a good time for stories
We are playing into a comedy of errors
And I know that you would rather be flying
But I must insist on an override

When you took the role of your lifetime
You were sure that you could hit every mark and line
And you were a game that I was playing
Not very well, in fact, I was losing all the time

If you’ll kindly leave me here
I may not be wiser
There existed a sound that I used to call you
And you would answer me

I will meet you back in your garden
In the Spring
It wasn’t a game
In the back of a mountain
It was Spring when you could answer me
