Harmless

(words and music:  Blinman/Ashburn)

You’re talking
Trying to distract me
Or is it that exactly
Am I incorrect?

I still see
The residue of feeling
Collecting on the ceiling
Where you’d least expect

Unnerving
Now you have to pretend
That you did not believe them
Do you disagree?

They’re staring
Is it your suspicion
Or the exhibition
Of regret they see?

It’s harmless – the meaning
You feel it – the shift
The knowledge – the science
The pressure – the rift
Remember – the question
It’s ruined – the end
A near miss – believe this
You lie still – again

You’re thinking
It’s only an expression
One of us will question
Are you sure you could?

I still feel
The residue of failure
Significantly later
Than they said I would

It’s harmless – the meaning
You feel it – the shift
The knowledge – the science
The pressure – the rift
Remember – the question
It’s ruined – the end
A near miss – believe this
You lie still – again

It’s harmless
