lyrics

BY THE MINUTE

His garden of secrets
What he didn’t say
The half that went missing
The half he shrugged away

His hidden calculations
Working overtime through the night
He led me down to the land of the lonely – I’m lonely
Persephone, all right

Now fear controls the flow of information
When the things you say are coded to mislead
As courage dies, so revelation
This conversation is getting weird

Baby, I need an ordinary kind of sanity
Fresh air not vanity
Someone who wants the best part of me
Maybe my heart on a deep blue sea

Who thinks like a window
Who opens like a door
With an appetite for love who will always
Ask for more

But fear controls the flow of information
When the things you say are coded to mislead
And as courage dies, so revelation
This conversation is gettin’ weird
It's gettin' really weird

You know - he took exception
To my every one of my suggestions
He summed me up and spit me out
I was just a bad taste in his mouth

He kept asking what I needed
How many times did I repeat it
How many ways did he not listen
And keep on asking the same question

Because fear controls the flow of information
When the things you say are coded to mislead
And as courage dies, so revelation
This conversation is getting weirder

By the minute
By the hour
By the week, the month, the year
Enough to last me a lifetime
That's clear
