about

As heard in the end credits of Showtime's 'House of Lies' episode 1, season 4.

lyrics

sometimes i think about
things before they happen
float it around in my head for a while

all of a sudden
its grown too big to handle
changed it’s clothes
and grown a mind of its own

too loud to listen
too proud to put the paper to the pen
clean up this place
run the vacuum of my head

too many time zones
two thousand planes
tack on the distance
it only brings me back again

these books are overdue
there’s tenderness inside
the depth of the lineup
watch the characters come alive

dip into the system
feel the volume fill the space
bending horizons
fall into place

all is forgiven
times will clean us
absolute, absolution
all is forgiven
time is a genius
absolute, absolution

shift these shapes
make the landscape disappear
tech tonic plates
serving powers to your fears

sometimes I hear that voice
when words were never spoken
proceed with caution
before glass has ever broken

quantize the groove
while it’s dancing in your head
controlled emotions
find me drifting instead

till we feel better without it
go and knit some sweaters about it
two stone statues
trying hard not to laugh

maybe there’s something in the movement
or the stillness of the air
put that good stuff on ice
and keep that elephant over there

let’s shift through modern times
i hold a future pass
non existent obstacles
squarely in our path

all is forgiven
times will clean us
absolute, absolution
all is forgiven
time is a genius
absolute, absolution
