mezzanine lyrics – continental drifters

released on ‘continental drifters’ (1995)

steel train hummin’ after scott starts to sail
well, they shine up like hair rails
south consume my thought
i start to pick everything apart
like i would rather sip my milk through a paper straw
i reflect on the world that i’ve seen
between ground flow and the mezzanine.

my shoe lace is busted
but it won’t make the escalator stop
should i get pulled in on top
carefull not to step on my light
it might become electrofied
still i draw conclusions on the things i’ve observed
even before i was eighteen
between ground flow and the mezzanine.

and bees make slum honey
from an old dye sewn in a paper cup
i’d rather hide than to say, “what’s up? ”
and if i whistle a tune
it p*sses off from room to room
still i’d take time and note the sun shinin’ through, it red
all i caught was a daydream
between ground flow and a mezzanine.
