Written in January 2009

Ask and you may receive
What have you got if you don’t believe?
I finally got what I asked for and it was nothing like what I need
Won’t you give me a shout more often
‘cause we need to get out more often
God’s in our corner now just like we both agreed

We had barely time to cut our teeth
Am I indebted ‘cause I just want to play?
It all caught fire and it burned, for a day

More reaction I want
Less distractions
Can you feel the attraction when you’re looking straight through me?
Let me make a prediction now
And show a little conviction now
It’ll keep you awake at night Are you scared of what you cannot see?

You’ve got your picture hanging on the wall
I’m out of time but all I want to do is call
This machine has headed me off
