about

From the album earlyNOP: The First Two LMNOP Albums. This track was originally issued on the independently released cassette LMNOP LMNOP.

lyrics

I can't see the sky.
I only open my eyes wide.
Selective perception is a useful device to screen everything.

I used to think about life in a funny way.
"A pedestal will make you fall if you stand on it too long."
I used to ponder all the time over things
I felt were wrong.

It's not a pretty picture for anyone I see these days.

A frame leads your eyes
Into a previous time...
You travel from moment to moment
But you'll always be here in familiar past tenses...

If I followed you there would I ever know
What year it is?
I was hoping you would keep up with that for now.
So back and forth we keep traveling and
It's nice you're feeling well.

Well it's not a pretty picture for anyone I see these days.
And there is not a pretty picture
On any wall I see
These days.

I want to seem like my ancestors seemed so many years ago.
I'm stuck in time but I'm trying
To find my way back home to you.
You.

You'll meet me at ten.
I'm still remembering when
We traveled (so far).
But now everything has come to an end (uh) end (uh).
We still have an option but it won't be so popular.

Now I'm looking ahead as I look behind.
I'm finding it's much easier to stay where I am this time.
It wears me out to be wearing clothes
Fashionable in 1993.

I saw this picture exposed
So many years ago
And it's developing.

But where were you,
You in the scene?
You're not in the place you were then.

Where were you?
Where were you?
