Once you were a person who arrived on time With eyes as bright as shoes just shined All right ideas and tight Levis When you closed your eyes You fantasized that things would be all right You took a road that no one knows about Wound throughout the woes, Highest highs and lowest of lows You learned that hope is often dwarfed by doubt Heavy hearts resound Quiet now, you can hear them sound Once you had motor and the will the drive A slide-rule mind with fuel to fly All-night rides and blown stoplights When you closed your eyes Never mind, you never closed your eyes You took a road that no one knows about Wound throughout the woes, Highest highs and lowest of lows You chased the work around a roundabout Mind outshouts your mouth Thought so loud you couldn’t hear a sound Now we an aging forest with boughs so high With roofs of leaves that frame the sky The loops repeat: birds crow, wolves cry When you close your eyes Curtains rise; you’re blinded by the light You took a road that no one knows about Wound throughout the woes, Highest highs and lowest of lows Made your peace up on the mortal mount Sounding through the throws Love is leaving everything you know Oh, Write it on your throat Love is leaving everything you know

First get your story straight, Born Oregon coast Orphanage-raised Forget un-lived ways Tiptoe lonesome roads Make home on the range Ripping kindling from the Bible Follow smoke signals for miles Walk until you’re tired of walking away Don’t stop if you’re not planning to stay Walk until you’re tired of walking away Leave ghosts in ghost towns Bury your dead Move on down Killing rattlesnakes and robbers Dreaming nightly of your father Ride until you’re tired of running away Don’t stop if you’re not planning to stay Ride until you’re tired of running away Cupid steal the reins Cripple my horse Make me stay Make sense of mistakes Study the stars Find my way The sole protector of the helpless Dress the wounds you haven’t dealt with Hide until you’re tired of running away Don’t say if you’re not planning to stay Hide until you’re tired of running away

Kaleidoscope 02:23
Sorry I’m late I made you wait You sure look great Girlish womanizer Friendly like a ghost Untwist your chain I’ll comb your mane Tempt you with tame And nobody’s the wiser Nobody else knows We are inside a kaleidoscope Inside a kaleidoscope Inside a kaleidoscope Inside a kaleidoscope I dig the grave Ten years too late What was your name? Soulful eulogizer Still writing you notes Inside a kaleidoscope Inside a kaleidoscope Inside a kaleidoscope Inside a kaleidoscope
