lyrics

Oh say can you see
By the ways of me I fall awake in my sleep
When those summer days are burning, burning
Lately Iʼve been aching to hide
Adjusting to your eyes
Devising when and where I shouldnʼt bother
In my pail there is no water
And drinking gas seems better than waiting for rain
Can I wait slipping thumbs between hands
Mouthing dreams I dance
Finding ways to keep a dry romance
Clouded mind makes water like wine
Every stagger entwined
With a rage that dims down with the sun
A threat of peace, thy kingdom come
Draped across a web now spun
The view it robs me of
Defining light
And I canʼt see whatʼs wrong or right
Yet I slip through binds of silk
Without a fight

But is it me or fables coning
Heart with mind
Claiming the sheep all
Deaf and blind without
A shepherd
Of the highest crook

Shifting his gaze into
A look that sees through south-side moss
And clings to earth like tree on prairie

Oh can it be
What is left underneath
Will rise up to breathe
All my fantasies about release
Oh will I sigh clenching all I can find
From cake to pine
Hoarding all that claims to be divine
Losing what I think is mine
And losing such a gifted sight
