Lyrics for Song: By The Time You Get This Message...
Lyrics for Album: Survival Story [2010]



By the time you get this message

I will be behind the wheel

Watchin' dotted yellow hexagrams

Stretch into the dark

Left hand surfin' on iced tinged winds

Chewin' up a cardboard box



Singin' at lung top, one stop

Left 'til I meet you in the concourse

St. Louie, encore, do we have a shot?

Caught, no dwellin' on the thought

What the hell we haven't got

So I'm headed from the dot to the spot



Where your plane touches down

For a six hour layover

Don't say a word, I found it on the map

Calculated it just a half a day to get from

Where you're not to where you will be

My hair is filthy, I'm drinkin' coffee



I can barely feel the trace

From the only time you kissed me on the face



Question mark, space

I know you're with me underneath the star-scape

Treadmill, pick up our pace

Head-start on a jet in a car chase



Is this the part where my heart breaks?

One asleep, one awake, back to back

'Cause you wouldn't turn towards me

Had me battlin' fractals, keeping track of all the chords

We created sound clash of swords back and forth

Couldn't poke through the sash



Slash through the plasterboard

You packing your passport, me on a crash course

To show you that I have the passion that you asked for

Floorin' the gas, tryin' a fast forward

Fifteen months, I'll see you once the sun shines through



The glass above the dashboard



The stars I see aren't even there

It's only light in the air

(By the time you get this message)

The stars I see aren't even there

(By the time you get this message)

It's only light in the air



By the time you get this message I'll be

Either on my second flight or already

All the way to my destination

Ridiculous that I could honestly expect you

Waitin' at the gate when I arrive

A sixteen hour drive



I've been feeling so silly



Goin' on now several months

As our obsession runs together

And whoever comes to have you, I'll be jealous of

And when above all else

You put her I'll know what it was



To feel so needed

Sorta wish that I was more of a romantic

And could give you back the utmost

But I've never seen it up close

From everything that I can tell

There are several possibilities



Maybe we're in love really

Maybe it's too early to really see

Maybe we're just searching for something



To hold onto amidst confusion and fragility

Maybe we've lost all sensibility

Will it become our 'Splendor In The Grass'?



When the facts have asserted themselves

And the memories pass into poetry and words that we tell

What only then can we be sure that we felt

Guess I prefer to be unhappy

Or weren't you looking at me

When my back became a wall?



Searched for your reflection

Saw exactly what you saw

Two kinds of different skin

Two minds exist within

Trying to just transcend all space and time

And lift their chin



And find some sense of purpose some sense of hope

Press my cheek against the window surface

We've been afloat

But now I'm nervous, has this been a joke?

We're landin' and it's time to close the envelope

Maybe I'll see you at the finish line



The stars I see aren't even there

It's only light in the air

(By the time you get this message)

The stars I see aren't even there

It's only light in the air

(By the time you get this message)



(By the time you get this message)

The stars I see aren't even there



It's only light in the air



By the time you get this message

By the time you get this message

By the time you get this message

By the time you get this message



The stars I see aren't even there

Light in the air
