about

A recent trip to Kansas City inspired this song, and it means a lot to me. I think anyone who witnesses changes in their friends will find some meaning in this song and, perhaps, some hope as well.

lyrics

Peekaboo
I see you
Hiding in the shadows
Howling at the moon
I don't quite understand why you have to be this way
But I can't stop watching from my hiding place
Peekaboo
I found you
Inside an iron cage
Like an animal in a zoo
The screaming, crying, cursing, thrashing fits that you display
Make the keepers nervous in a sympathetic way

You're gone, you're out of sight
Adrift in the black of night
I came to change your fate
But all I have to do is wait
Just close my eyes and count to eight...

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Peekaboo
Peekabee?
Peeka-what the fuck is happening to me?
I see the world through a million different lenses
But the dullness of my senses
Incapacitates me
Peekaboo
I choose you!
To help me find the peace of mind I once knew
The treasure hunt begins in the same damn place
The most amazing race is running through my brain

I'm gone, I'm out of sight
Adrift in the black of night
You came to give me peace
To make the waking nightmare cease
All you do is count with me

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Peekaboo
Same to you
I found the meaning in the vision of you
Even if I don't believe it, I will be there by your side
Just join with me and count in time

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

We're gone, we're out of sight
Adrift in the black of night
I'll keep the search alive
Until we understand the why
Of you
