lyrics

My favorite stories start with me
Wrapped up snugly in the past
Far from the ugly edge of now
And when I'm feeling down & out

I peer into my Magic 8 Ball view
I can read everything in my Magic 8 Ball

I will sacrifice a knight
Stuck on right edge of the board
Driving around stoned with his friends
A means to justify the end

My dear footmen dragging their feet
Oh baby I'm a bishop
Drab and marking defeats
I peer into my Magic 8 Ball view
I can read everything in my Magic 8 Ball

If only I could picture a move before making it
Before the pieces all shift
I could make use of this sacrifice
And capture, and take, and hold
What we were born to know
Your password, your wishlist, the checkmate

At St. Kenneth's
In the aisles of the pews or in the foyer
We were waiting
Forty whole minutes or up to an hour
You asked the dead angel what were we doing
I think we always said we were drawing on graph paper
Reading Henry Sugar And Other Stories

When the bass kicked in at last
We were snugly in the nest
I held it close up to my heart
In the body not the mind

And peered into my Magic 8 Ball view
Oh I can read everything in my Magic 8 Ball
I peer into my Magic 8 Ball
Oh I can see everything in my Magic 8 Ball
