How's It Going to Be

Album:  Third Eye Blind (1997)
Released as a single and video in 1998

I'm only pretty sure that I can't take anymore,
Before you take a swing,
I wonder
What are we fighting for,
When I say out loud,
I want to get out of this,
I wonder,
Is there anything
I'm going to miss,
How's it going to be,
When you don't know me,
How's it going to be,
When you're sure
I'm not there,
How's it going to be,
When there is no one there to talk to about,
How it's going to be,
'Cause I don't care,
How's it going to be,
Where we used to laugh,
There's a shouting match,
Sharp as a thumbnail scratch,
A silence I can't ignore,
Like . . The hammocks and the doorways we spent time in,
Swing empty,
Don't see lightning like last fall
When it was always
About to hit me,
I guess that is how it's going to be.
Want to get back in again,
The soft dive of oblivion.
