Lyrics
KEEP YOUR DISTANCE


To live or to dream,
The two aren't consistent,
The difference between--
In keeping your distance.
Keep your distance.

The girl you're adoring--
Disillusion in an instant,
When she's there in the morning,
So better keep your distance.
Keep your distance.

The odalisk that's on the screen
Is now the sad girl on your couch.
Captured loveliness it seems,
Can't survive the journey to your house.


To watch or to do,
The urge must be resisted,
To combine the two--
So try to keep your distance.
Keep your distance.

To live or to dream,
The two aren't consistent,
The difference between--
In keeping your distance.
Keep your distance.

The oasis in the desert
Just rocks and sand when you approach.
A mirage will melt whenever
You reach to touch and get too close.
