Knowing before I Knew

Bring forth the subject
gagged and bound
I can unravel more about you in two seconds than a lifetime worth of research

Beautiful, ugly, whatever the outcome may be just learn from it
Knowing before knowing and taking more from the blue deck

Make me the benefactor of lost knowledge and an unbridled consciousness
Lavish set of instincts I’ve acquired through personal gain
Help me bleed you more quickly if that’s even the right choice of words for this moment

I’m the counter clock movement in this one way relationship
the eavesdropper at the dinner table
butting in on your conversation
telling you what the future holds

Now you’ll want more from the red deck as the perspiration bewilders your palms
You knew before you knew that I knew what you knew

Follow my bread crumb trail of indecisive parameters
a glorious new way of thinking has poured itself through my veins
fresh isn’t the way to describe it, it’s too old for this fancy ice age

Tell me what you know before you know it
please tell me all you’ve seen, before you’ve seen it
blink once or twice, give me a call sign
push the white out of your looks cause it’s blocking the right choice

Raise the sign
you’re fully aware that I’ve been scanning the light that cascades in your eyes
finding a way back home to the answer
