my vision's out of shape
because it's been so long
since i saw into you

i get all kinds of headaches
from comparing someone else's
blurry selves to what i knew

and my lenses are unclear
and their words are underwater
so I can't make out their anecdotal charms

that's why seeing into you sets off alarms

aligned and laser-checked and
i inspect them close enough
'till dawn

i rub my eyelids with a fist
and it gets misty from a distance - squinting;
then i'm gone

and my lenses still unclear
and their words all underwater
even if i gave a shit about their charms

that's why seeing into you sets off alarms
