  1. Cat Instead

From the recording Flying Solo

Lyrics

When you're lying in your bed
and you don't think things can get worse
your reach for the telephone
but you grab the cat instead.

There's chaos in the air.
The president's on TV.
You reach down for your shoes
but you grab the cat instead.

What can you do?
There's no one in your house
except for you
in the space between the walls.
What can it be?
There's nothing in the room
that you can see
to help explain what you feel.

Walk into the bathroom,
look into a cracked mirror,
barely recognize the same old features.
Pulling on a frozen window,
drunk men by the bar
rapidly slurring their words
in the gray foam.

What can you do?
There's no one in your house
except for you
in the space between the walls.
What can it be?
There's nothing in the room
that you can see
to help explain what you feel.

What can you see?
There's nothing in vision
only a fading
image of a cat
where the phone should be.
