gettin’ low in the high-rise

gotta twitch in my right eye
i’ve got an itch in my mind’s eye
i’m livin’ low in the high-rise
looking out from the inside

i’m growing limbs like a bonsai
i’m taking tips like a p.i.
i tell fibs but i don’t lie
looking out from the inside

ease your grip before you capsize
i’m eating limes in the lime-light
sour face is the new blight
looking in from the outside

can’t you be civilized for a little while?
can’t you act typical for a point in time?

i’ve gotta twitch in my right eye
i’ve got an itch in my mind’s eye
livin’ low in the high-rise
looking out from the inside

can’t you act civilized for a little while?
can’t you be typical for a point in time?

i’ve gotta twitch in my right eye
i’ve got an itch in my mind’s eye
livin’ low in the high-rise
looking out from the inside

miscalculation

a song for the times….

i ain’t going to be last one
but i ain’t going to be the first one
i think you should do the honors

but it was just a little lockdown
a tiny problem with reactors
no need to sound the alarm bells
you can finish your lunch yeah

and i ain’t going to be the first one
but i might not be last one
i think we picked up something deadly
when we made it to re-entry

someone’s gotta be the first one
but i ain’t going to be the first one
i think we made a mistake
maybe miscalculated

you know the question’s a hard one
someone asked me to be gentle
but i told them i’m a cactus
so what do we do about this

you know the question’s a good one
someone asked me to be all things
well i’m a little out of practice
in the omniscient arena

so i’ll just wait for a subpoena
and for them to call me in
