Dander

And every hair on my neck stands up

If you trace the eye lines between each moment that we bare
You could orienteer all those peaks and troughs of evasive stares
Everytime I follow you, you shut the door and run again
Into the open with your thousand island dressing friends
And with each step you take the distance grows but you pretend
That is only the beginning and it’s not the end

Have you seen my dander going? Is it up or is down?
Have you seen my patience did I bury it or is it drowned?
Have you seen my dander run now is it right of is it left?
Have you seen my broken spirit or is it just so bereft?

And when I pass my tongue through your tombstone teeth it tastes of emptiness
Each time you drown an emotional core I think of you a little less
I will stop and lock my heart before you burn it all away
Pull the plug on all these tears from my internal flail and flay
I gave you all I had with napkins, cherries and a serving tray
But you’re so dead inside behind your public display

Have you seen my dander going? Is it up or is down?
Have you seen my temper soaring my thoughts just spinning round and round!
Have you seen my dander run now is it right of is it left?
Have you seen the damage done it’s just a sorry mess!

All I need is a connection – to last me through the day
Just some spark of life, not somebody whose ether is slowly ebbing away
I can feel the atom cracking, splitting, chasing, fizzing and bubbling again
If you don’t grow some soon, I’m just going to go completely insane

Have you seen my dander going? Is it up or is down?
Have you seen my patience did I bury it or is it drowned?
Have you seen my dander run now is it right of is it left?
Have you seen my broken spirit or is it just so bereft?
Have you seen my dander going? Is it up or is down?
Have you seen my temper soaring my thoughts just spinning round and round!
Have you seen my dander run now is it right of is it left?
Have you seen the damage done it’s just a sorry mess!
Have you seen my dander? have you seen my dander?
Have you seen my temper? Have you seen my temper?
