Silver Jews My Pillow is The Threshold Lyrics

Last updated: 05/12/2008 11:00:00 AM

I take decaf coffee
Two sugars and one cream
I don't see the use in staying up
Just to watch tv

I unplug all the neon
Turn the ringer off the phone
Throw my thoughts like tomahawks
Into this world which I disown

Because the pillow that i dream on
Is the threshold of a kingdom
Is the threshold of a world
Where I'm with you

Its a dark and snowy secret
And it has to do with heaven
And what looks like sleep
Is really hot pursuit

I hold your picture in my mind
It makes me warm when I'm cold
It gets me up, it makes me walk
It makes me question what I'm told

Somewhere in a foggy atlas
Lookout mountain, lookout sea
First life takes time, then time takes life
Now the next move's up to me

Because the pillow that I dream on
Leads to some fantastic glory
It's a threshold of a world
I can't ignore

Like time on school from heaven(?)
Did you find me sleeping in your doorway
Now I'm here for good
I won't leave you anymore
