SONG of the DAY - New Realization ~ Sublime - from “Second Hand Smoke" (1997)
The time has come,
to reach a new realization ‘tween me and you,
time to clear the rumors, sensations,
and things that just are untrue.
Well I thought I heard you behind me,
with a knife stright for my back.
It’s quite clear that I’m back in the swing of living,
although I might not be on the right track.
Oh, thought I might drown but its hard to keep a good man-
Downtown’s wheres you’ll find me,
through some ill gotten’ hand
Although I never listen girl, I damn well understand.
And you think, I’m so damn feeble.
I can’t see through your lies, you’re just a crock of shit,
with a pretty smile, and I refuse to compromise.
Oh, you’re givin’ me such a heavy, heavy, heavy load.
You may hold some vision of truth, if truth can found in a lie.
Maybe some grain of inspiration, for somethin’ that’s deep inside.
Oh, tears running down your face, just screaming look me in the eye.
Well I’m looking straight at your twisted face,
and it’s enough to make me cry.
Oh, passions there for those who want to
pay the price of loving you,
in more ways than one.
Wrapped around your finger
but I think my time has come
but I never can be too sure, ‘cause I like to have a little fun.
Oh, what fun it would be to blow my mind and fall into the sun.
A mind is a precious thing to taste.
