I know I never listened to that tape you gave me. I can say I tried.
I got through the first song before I quit on you.
And I know that you saw something in my eyes last night
you never tried to understand, or question, so why should I?
Why should I?

And I know that you can notice when my mind's made up. It's a lot these days.
You never really got beyond the 'words are dust.'
And I know that when the bracket comes to save us all, we'll understand.
These silences won't seem to go on quite so long.
