Between sunset and sunrise
Dipping your feet in the spaces
Between the written lines,
Resting in the cracks of moonlight
Just beyond the pines.
You would like to know
What goes on in my mind.
One step forward,
Two back,
Crossing the lines,
Dotting the I's,
Let's not go there
If this is a game
All the same
Then you don't play fair.
You say you don't care
And we are neverwhere.
It's a pity
Too much of this already
In this city.
There is a way out,
Right or wrong,
But you keep a checklist
And you think fate is a myth.
Tell me again,
What is all this about?
