lyrics

Stop the car you know that I
Couldn’t let you see this old animal die
Like buzzards we must pick and pry
Ideas born when left will lie

Creation myth was written down
Through tongues that tell we spread them around
All things that grow must start from the ground
Create we might with borrowed sound

O Zephyr, carry me
From this walk I’ve trodden so carefully
If I might claim some divine source
Will the ears perk up like ears of corn?

Volumes lift me off the earth
While my verses ponder so dark in the dirt
Regardless guardian sing up from the mirk
The pains of growth, a flightless bird

O Zephyr, carry me
From this walk I’ve trodden so carefully
If I might claim some divine source
Will the ears perk up like ears of corn?

Darling I can see the rust
On your woven cloak of tin stardust
You’ve always been a cavern torn
An expedition, along the shore

Within the silos of making
There live the only ones gone crazy
That hermitage we longed for
The scavengers do maketh more by taking

If I don’t tinker anything
I will hang here by a string
You know the scavengers do maketh more by taking

Darling I can see the rust
On your woven cloak of tin stardust
You’ve always been a cavern torn
An expedition, along the shore
