lyrics

In the small universe
of your apartment and your office
and the empty bed you once shared
You’re losing light
as it spirals inward
to a mass from which nothing can escape
And it appears invisible
to your office-mates
and the mailman
and the television
but not to me

She’s falling, falling,
falling hard
into her little black hole
And even hope and faith
cannot escape the gravity
of her little black hole

I worked so long
to recapture
my gravity and levity
through years of spinning on this earth
But when I talk you don’t listen
Just another white male
An authority, with quick fix
A prescription
So I fall back
helpless
trying to understand,
trying to comprehend
your theory of negativity
that’s pulling me in

I’m falling, falling,
falling hard
into her little black hole
And even hope and faith
cannot escape the gravity
of her little black hole

You open up your textbook,
You’ll believe anything you read
Except for what you need,
‘cause that’s what makes you bleed
In the small universe
of your apartment, front room,
and the empty couch you once shared
The compact glow
of the TV collapsing
any idea how you got there
She’s falling, failing,
falling hard
into her little black hole
And even hope and faith
cannot escape the gravity
of her little black hole
