Counter

i couldn't see behind the counter
i didn't know what you were trying to sell to me
there is no clearance in this discretion
where i am is just where you wanted me to be.

i didn't know the look you gave me
but what you saw through made me recognize myself.
the strange face i was copping earlier
is under lock and somewhere on the bottom shelf.

just show me where to go
I'll prob'ly follow you
name the place and i will look it up.
i'll find my way by the lights that are in the direction of your stare.
