lyrics

Midnight rollers
please console me
You're granted without explanation
Essentially dependent on them
sketching charcoal drawings of them
hanging without a trace then - read again

I can't believe I found Emma in Ann Arbor
Just another suburb
cinching tight to the city

Going down to the pit
where the three yards meet
and everybody looks the same
like reflections off cellophane
their feet all muddy
from vain explorations of self
Of consciousness - of someone else
I dare not rebel as I'd been
I wonder what you'd write about this
About me - about them

I can't believe I found an Emma in Ann Arbor
Again
While I’m living

In your presence under decaying marquees
you stood like silence with me
flashing every second on every other bulb
The filaments flicker
his name illuminated

I can't believe I found an Emma in Ann Arbor
Again
While I’m living
