lyrics

first time you made my mind
was the first time I changed it

when you make my mind
you defy it's cheap limitations
when you make my mind
you rewind it's loose expectations

but each time your brilliant brain
betrays it's perfect frame, honey

unless tomorrow's future
is different from today's
you must believe in a blank slate
since you keep it so empty and plain
ought not think, dearest
for the will lead to thoughts
thoughts unwelcome, thoughts are seldom
what you think you thought

and I thought it was love
just the ideas more than enough
when you're young and dumb
yeah
but I still believe
that the melody echoes
the writers memories
and I still believe
that the painting will reflect
the painter's fantasies

but paint-by-number isn't jazz, babe
though every craft has it's math, honey

your accuracy seems rough
re-multiply and add it up
you're trying to stand with two left hands
and I'm trying to build you a crutch
your mind's like your canvas
you've coloured yourself confused
maybe I could be the glue
when your right mind finds you
when your right mind finds you
when your right mind finds you
so I won't think, when I think
I think into a thought
thoughts unwelcome, thoughts are seldom
what you think you thought

now we know who we are
yeah we're just a little pissed about it
