Erase each line out of me!
They are so broken down by lame & numb.
With each line that's been erased
there's a new day that will come along to drift from.

For all I know my dreams have come.
A pile now outgrown with gum.
Why hold on when none still grow?

In the sunshine will the morning meet the cold
with just the wavelength to make all our grasses grow?
I lay down my bed of days.
Raise all my better days.

Now we're old and made anew.
The season we drift through
that have no way to youth.
How lazy we blaze through all those better days
when it seems they go

on and on
from out of things that come.
So far away then from the rule and a hum.

On and on.
The grift within us then.
With all the games we play
to crawl in someone's bed.
I laid down by better days.
Reach out for better days.

In the sunshine
well hello there meet the old.
Its just the new day where we're brought into our own.

On we go.
Fear within us that
if all we came to has evolved into our best.
Why live out these better days
without our better days?
