  1. Stoic

From the recording WE ARE A GHOST NOW, YOU & I

Lyrics

Lately I’ve been feeling,
Adrift upon the sea,
Like I am not the captain
And time does not belong to me.
I’m stoic as a scarecrow
Unbothered by the breeze.
This is someone else’s suffering and now
My branches would return to trees.
Furrow in the brow and charming,
Sternly cast a long lined shadow.
Window is a mirror and the past is a reflection.
All good children go to heaven
Past the garden, past temptation,
Past the proletariat and past the waves of the shame.

I can wait for you only so long now.
Put on your dancing shoes
And spin.
~~~
Artful is as artful does,
These parties always end up early.
Won’t these Yankee animals stop pawing at your skirts?
And if you
Work your knuckles stiff and bruise your muscles at an easel.
You’ll be working then you’re leaving something
Long after you’re dead.
~~~
I can wait for you only so long now.
Put on your dancing shoes
And spin.
