Soft Colours 03:04
I weave this twill into a song a prayer flag I sing to myself woodblock print of superstition take me I don't want to know why this world is so hard Don't leave me in this sharps disposal this prayer box of scatterbliss don't leave me in love that looks like this a prayer box for what you want a prayer box for what you don't a prayer box for what you don't want to be a prayer box for what you are and you don't see You grew out of this lye you grew out of its loneliness and hydroxides enough to peel but it left your hands clean you grew out of this little town all the "cul-de-sac" and "crescent" kids you know where that could have led you to you grew out of this town coded in soft colours tanned and dusty roads who knows what it was or what it could have been I weave this twill into a passage back to the cottonseed hull before it cracked to the tender leaves we wrapped on our new skins A prayer box for what you want to quit a prayer box for what you think will make you fit a drop-box for prayers like used up bliss and love don't look this You grew out of this little town and after all it said it never would change for anyone man you know where that always leads you grew out of this town coded on soft colours by men who held on and who held it all in
