I've got my Eyes on the Parting Gift

For a limited time I'd like to rope you all in
For a limited time I'd like to expose your lack of sin
I could just start talking
But there'd be no one to listen
So I'll take my breath
And breathe a silent breath of true love

I've got my eyes on the parting gift
Because the prize only belongs to some
I've got my eyes on the parting gift
I'm in it to spin it, not to win it & I'm alone

For a number of days—zero
I want to live inside your haze
Am I the one who's really missing out
Or are the ones' who are out & "about"
They live all the tertiary things
& yeah they've got wings
But they don't have ears or eyes
They have empty hellos & goodbyes

I've got my eyes on the parting gift
The prize is empty, yet heavy so I won't lift
I've got my eyes on the parting gift
I'm in it to spin it, not to win it & I'm alone here
