lyrics

There's two pairs of glasses on my dashboard
One pair's prescription and the other's dark lens
And one helps to clear my vision
And the other acts in my defense
Yeah the dark sunglasses conceal me from crowds
Or cast me a shadow when the bar gets loud
I only wear prescription when the scene's not sore
When I like what I see and I wanna see more
So I wonder next time I see you which pair I'll reach for

Will I laugh when I see you at the size of it all
At the smallness of you that makes the big dominoes fall
The tiny little stopper builds up a head of steam
And now it's vent or get bent or stay stuck in between
Wondering next time I see you which pair I'll reach for

Should I stay or should I run
Set the blasters for kill or stun
Are you a raisin in the sun or a juicy grape
Flypaper waiting for a piece of masking tape
To call your own

Well light travels fast, really really fast
I mean really super awful goddamn fast
But still everything you see
Is just a bit in the past
So the faster I drive towards the onrush of light
That's travel through time so I could see you tonight
While the miles pile up like reasons I might
Push on to your house or just pull over to the right
And I'm wondering next time I see you which pair I'll reach for

Between the fall and the winter's night
There's a moment at dusk where the colors are right
I'll capture you then and remember you now
Cause a faint memory is all my eyes will allow

There's two pairs of glasses on my dashboard
One pair's prescription and the other's dark lens
And one helps to clear my vision
While the other acts in my defense
So I wonder next time I see you which pair I'll reach for
