Nits /

Athens

It's running through my veins
I'm in Athens and it rains
It's tapping at this window
I'm in Athens and it rains

There is a cloud in my eyes
On this late afternoon
It flies through the sky
It will be ammonia soon

And every time I turn a corner
I smell an aroma so sweet
In a coma my feet stop walking

It cannot disappear
I'm laughing through the tears
I'm laughing through the tear... years

It cannot disappear
I'm in Athens, I'm here
I will not disappear

So keep the strange eye
Keep the strange smell
For yourself
And no one else
Keep the answer

So I look at the lines in my hand
See the future
See the past
It ends

It cannot disappear
I'm in Athens and I'm here
It cannot disappear

There are too many ruins here
And I'm one of them
I fear

Somewhere a phone is ringing
Somewhere someone's singing
"Trains and boats and planes"
I'm in Athens and it rains
