Building Houses

about

i just had this dream
where we meet suddenly
on the shore of mission bay
twenty five years from today
surprised we say 'hi, how's the wife?'
pull up pictures full of smiles
wondering why the hell we neglected to write

i just had this dream
where we meet by the sea
three decades washed away
hair follicles fallen and grey
we recall how are our plans had derailed
but it all turned out okay
they were years spent avoiding the rain

you tell me how LA just shoved you away
they cut all your funding and dared you to stay
you started building houses and married a girl in the church back home
in turn i recall how the band fell apart on the very first tour
i pawned my guitars and i drove
i just drove for days
