lyrics

Memoirs

i wrote down my memoirs
and some were even true
but since my mind has shattered
invention saw me through

the world sped on without me
i waved and turned away
there was little left to shout
no ears for what i’d say

what did you find at the end of the line
flowers and trinkets and beads
what was the flashing that drew your eyes down
that mirror caught cracked in the weeds

had it all been fruitless
my fool pursuits in vain
did each life look just like this
before the final drain

concrete world too present
my visions like a mist
too many blows the coward heart
too many times the fist

chorus

i had packed a sandwich
i ate it in the wood
how the soft light beckoned
i felt i understood

what did you find at the end of the line
flowers and trinkets and beads
what was the flashing that drew your eyes down
that mirror caught cracked in the weeds
