In the Key of the Number E

Pillbox miracle
Sure to hear an ear full
Desperate to contest this
Promise to profess this
Sober song so empty
So bemused that it kept me

Don't call me cryptic
I told you it all but you missed it
Don't call me cryptic
Don't call me cryptic
I told you it all but you missed it
Don't call me cryptic
Or I'll encrypt this

These words rehearsed
But conversely drawn from a blank slate
These words dispersed
By the burst of the worst parts of a quaint state

Don't call me cryptic
Don't call me cryptic

Consciously I'd remind you
Of the thoughts that divide you
From what it wasn't, was it?
Enough but not above it
I know you love it
I know you love it

So don't call me cryptic
You heard the words when I said them
So don't forget them
And when I meant them
This is a song just for you and everyone who knew me when I sang it
When we were hanging
Midwest in the rest
Of the best laid plans to make mice out of men

But don't call
So don't call
No, don't call me cryptic

Intone a few notes
Hold on and let go
But don't call me cryptic
You can call me cryptic
You know I'd miss it
