TROUBLE

lyrics

tonight I set the bottle down
and saw reflected in its glare
the mortal whim, a tiny sin
that led me to project it there

now morning comes, and miles away
they're cleaning up what matters
but in a hum of slow decay
my looking glass is shattered

tonight I set the bottle down
and it was on somebody's head
he looked surprised and then his eyes
turned to me as he bled and said:

tonight I set the bottle down
to help me see more clearly
but all that I could think upon
was what I love most dearly

tonight I set the bottle down
and saw reflected in its glare
the mortal whim, a tiny sin
that led me to project it there
