lyrics

It all returns to me

Suburban bathers are on the sea
The trumpet players are on fourth street
Masonic bodies are all around
Masonic ears are to the ground

Exhuming caskets from the graveyard
Planting headstones in the golf course
Masonic bodies are all around
Masonic boots are on the ground

Think of tomorrow as the present
Think of today in the past tense
The plumbob begins to stabilize
The metronomes begin to synchronize

Change your name with a dash or a diacritic
Change your mind with thought processes analytic
Masonic math determines what you're worth
A Masonic hand pops out of the earth

Saving up my breath so you've something to breathe
Saving for my death so I've something to bequeath
Saving myself so there's something to entomb
Saving for my death so you've something to exhume

Found a new spectrum to exist upon
Found a new circle to run in
Found a new hill to die upon
Found another to be buried in

We had a plan till you skirted it
We had a pact till you found reason to quit
I was so blind to the state of things
Masonic doctrines tell it like it is

Injunction filed against the AARP
They sold my info to the cemetery
What if I fall and I can't get up?
Masonic dollars buy my email back

I like it most when the shutter deploys
I like your eyelids more than your eyes
The slow returning of the pendulum
Legs of the children on the swing set

Never paid so much for an empty book
But now every digit is vestigial
Masonic minds broadcast psychic waves
Masonic eyes read ahead a page

Saving up my breath so you've something to breathe
Saving for my death so I've something to bequeath
Saving myself so there's something to entomb
Saving for my death so you've something to exhume

Found a new spectrum to exist upon
Found a new circle to run in
Found a new hill to die upon
Found another to be buried in

You're gonna get it, you're gonna get it
You're gonna get it, you're really gonna get it
Gonna regret it, you're gonna get it
Gonna regret it, you're really gonna get it

Maybe the rapture will come tomorrow
Maybe the revolution will come tomorrow

Now you see I'm free
This is really me
It's my platonic ideal
This is where I belong
Build to nothing
Billed to no one
Infinitesimally small
Unfathomably large
Impossible to construe
Every word is true
