lyrics

Not everything you desire is impossible
And the focus you bring to this room
Is your focus:
Immense, intense, you bend space
Just to see it your way.

You'll gather up clues to fit your case:
The way she brings the cup to her face.
But all your efforts won't sustain you
When you ignore the core that pains you.

Driven to distraction, a series of escapes;
You learn to read, you learn to drink,
To do whatever it takes.

I've been to the north pole
And i've been to the south pole
And it's caffeine and alcohol and no rest
In between

Now your focus is building up constructs
And your constructs into calamities
Crashing down around you.
It's not so mechanical,
The getting inside is not so mechanical.

You planned out your evening
And the fortune cookie promised adventure
Between the sheets.
But you'd better keep a lookout,
You'd better keep breathing -
You know there are just no guarantees.

Driven to distraction, a series of escapes;
You learn to read, you learn to drink,
To do whatever it takes.

I've been to the north pole
And i've been to the south pole
And it's caffeine and alcohol and no rest
In between.

Not everything you desire is impossible
And the focus you bring to this room
Is your focus.
