Lyrics

(Oh)
A small cloud has fallen
The white mist hits the ground
My lungs comfort me with joy
(Oh)
Vegging on one detail
The rest just crowds around
My eyes itch of burning red

I picture sounds of moving insects so surreal
Lay around, looks like I found something new

(Oh)
Laying in my bed
I think I'm in left field
I picture someone I think it's you
(Oh)
You're standing so damn close
My body begins to swell
Why does one and one make two?

I picture sounds of moving insects so surreal
Lay around, looks like I found something new

(Oh)
Laying in my bed
I think I'm in left field
I picture someone I think it's you
(Oh)
You're standing so damn close
My body begins to swell
Why does one and one make two?

I picture sounds of moving insects so surreal
Lay around, looks like I found something new
