lyrics

Now, Time, it has a gravity.
The 4th and 5th dimension
are in fact, attached inside of me,
And I am so attracted
to this mass that’s made of memory.
The further I fly from it;
thus, the closer it does seem to be.
It’s like that song that’s sung by Morrissey.
He goes: The more you ignore me,
the closer I get. You’re wasting your time.
The more you ignore me,
the closer I get. You’re wasting your time.

But the problem with nostalgia,
is that all the things that happened,
Through my imprecise remembering,
seem to soften out and flatten,
Like a postcard of the ocean
lacks the weight of the horizon.

‘Cause perspective only feigns a 3rd dimension.
‘cause perspective is an optical illusion.
‘cause perspective only simulates our vision.
