lyrics

Coming In

It’s the wonder I felt
Not the same as before
When I relied on the news
And the things that you told me
All the sounds, old and new
It’s the place in the night where I’d go

And the same way you said
How to use all the magic in the air
I dunno, it’s the way
That you told me to believe
In the things
The things that you know I can’t believe in

So I'll be coming in
on the sidewalk
on the 12th page
but in first place

It's not a time stamp
in the parlance
of the finance
or the last calls

I'm a hope train
with a hunger and
don't need a CV
or a television set

I'm a hard rain
from the dashboard
with a six string
and a seventh chord
on the eight day
on the nine ball
on the 42nd number
on the 13th floor

Are you picking up?
Are you receiving?
On the internet
On the ham set

I know my way
to the frequency
and I can handle
any latency
I'm not a hothead
with his shoestrings
in a prison cell
of existence
it's not a first date
steady heart rate
or spinning plate
or a cellphone battery

discharge
mischarge
low charge
no charge
In your car
turn hard
and then you
see me
in the mirror on your windscreen
I’m not a smoke screen
Just a steady stream
Just a human being
