Afternoon Owls Lyrics

HALF MAN
half man
it’s amazing when you do what you can
and then
comes the time we’re starting over again
come down
so i can reach your head and snatch off the crown
spread out
form a circle, we can sing it out loud
sometimes
we stand there staring like we’re waiting in line
at night
i’m always bumping into things on my right
this wind
bowls me over, leaves it mark on my skin
new blend
thrown together, who knows what was mixed in

TIME WELL SPENT
lead me down
take me straight to the bottom
spin me round
so he can’t see who shot him
you’ll never see me again
this place is tired
time’s been well spent
it pleases me girl
how your hair never changes
what in the world
is going to make me feel ageless
you’ll never see me again
this place is tired
time’s been well spent

OVER THE WAVES
now that the time has finally come
only a shout gets through to some
you’ll find it’s hard to touch the tops of the waves
night came and went without a sound
nothing to keep from making the rounds
you’ll find it’s hard to touch the tops of the waves
you’ll find it’s hard to make your way through the haze
and as for the last cruel twist of fate
don’t waste my time and make me wait
you’ll find it’s hard to touch the tops of the waves
you’ll find it’s hard to make your way through the haze
cause the impact sank the boat
and i could hardly feel the blow

PERFECT RECORD
it started with a question
that disregarded, became a lie
i got my shoes for walking
i got my spirits up on high
it’s hard to admit that you’re not always right
when you’ve never made a mistake in your life
sunday in the morning
i awaken to a surprise
a sudden inspiration
a funny feeling, butterflies
it’s hard to admit that you’re not always right
when you’ve never made a mistake in your life
i dreamt you built a castle
just to turn and burn it down
stop-frame animation
an invitation to paint the town
broke off all relations
to keep my head from spinning round
i got drunk, drank another
then hit the gutter to lay me down
it’s hard to admit that you’re not always right
when you’ve never made a mistake in your life
you can’t always see to the other side
when you’ve never made a mistake in your life

WE’RE ON THE WAY
you know i can look at your brother
and know what he’s gonna say
never fear my dear, yes, we’re on the way
hey man it’s not like it’s raining
i’m sure it’s your lucky day
never fear my dear, yes, we’re on the way
show me how pleasant your world is
i know you’ll make me want to stay
never fear my dear, yes, we’re on the way
promise me a break in the action
somewhere in the middle of may
never fear my dear, yes, we’re on the way
apparently they’re searching our lodgings
something you forgot to repay
never fear my dear, yes, we’re on the way
i swear i saw you pulling your hair back
trying hard to hide the gray
never fear my dear, yes, we’re on the way
