"The Shuffle"

The other day no one could see the sun
It was so pristine...
The other day I saw a man with his feet on backwards
man was I mean
The next day I met a mujer with her mind in backwards
man was I nice

The next day I could see the sun's light
and my stomach didn't feel that well
as if I'm displeased
or searching for more
today is putting such strain on my eyes

I put on my white t-shirt and descended into the cloudless fog
for the simple fact...that I don't know
I put on my white t-shirt and prepared to get lost
