lyrics

Songs of honor always seemed to be the ones you found the best to sing. Flipping through your periodicals and other sources of escape, on and on you lost yourself around the movement of your eyes and hands, never bothering to see or feel. Trust was such a difficulty then, but now we'll never be alone again. Say you know a reason why the colors never ran beyond the lines now that all the boundaries have disappeared, if they were ever there. Speak until the intonations in your voice have taken color too, and I'll remind you not to sing your blues. There was such a hassle when we didn't know that everything was here for us. Don't sew your stitches in a straight row, I'm here. Let go, just let the needlework show you lines of lace entwined with woven, elaborate designs. Threads and threads in ties, drape your perfectionist mind. Now go, go on, pull the loose end and let's watch it all unwind. With the pale December morning you awaken once the chill has passed, reveling to find yourself a fiber in the fabric of a truth. Toss all of your questions over in the basket just beside the door, please be kind enough to hit the lights, and don't forget to let me know whenever god is coming into town again.
