half a day to run to, to run through, it's sunny and a half a day to find dogs, to saddle up, to get it done, iditarod I said a half a day to fine tune, to fight through to fine tune it's sunny and a heidel day da dum dye day! Well, the north is crying out with a very large mouth got a taste can't spit it out and I am not the one to tangle with the fate line I can feel my bones shaking is it just me or just how it's supposed to be? the mystery is pressing on my eyeholes
Nobody ever wants to be in the kind of town where in the atlas you can never see, politically blinded certainly it hurts when people aren't aware of your being Riding on the bus you always see the very same faces every single day and week by week, so you can tell me everything about their lives and all of their favorite things to eat Peering through the gates I see two very hungry towers glistening filling all the lines with energy do you every stop and think of what they're eating? Has anyone ever been in your house that didn't always live there If you were my only friend, could it be that I could never see your bedroom with all the books and magazines that you read Do people ever disappear at night, vanishing suddenly with winks from the guards who stand outside and secretly imply that scientists inside experiment to see if people burn chemically
Filling blood up with so many silly humors it's a shiny shiny drug that shapes the thoughts between the knees a brimming house filled up with all the simplest pleasures it's a happy happy home a sanctuary for childish glee I like lit-so-low a little honesty Total standout with all of the perfect gestures not an itty-bitty bug but a full-blown tramplebeast gazing over, she always sees two different flavors and those are sour bones wrapped right up in sugar sweet Say you will, over the meadow I'm crashing there at your feet and where you go, you'll know that I'll follow cause where you are is where I'll be Went and got lost out in rural Pennsylvania got caught outside when the rain was falling sheets and through the brambles I stumbled on a hidden river it's an icy icy flood in which I finally wash my feet
