lyrics

All Thumbs

I met you on a spider’s web
taught that hire-wire we learned to walk
arms stretched out
but so as not to fall

into these bodies of water
whirlpools that could swallow you whole
if it doesn’t go down in the storm
it gets washed back to shore

and it’s cold
cold on this side of the road
cold on this side of the road
the last words you wrote

kept my laces tied fingernails clean
learned to pilot these heavy machines
constantly juggling the coals and the fire

still my face has grown harder
the face of my dear father
it stares back
through the eyes in the mirror at mine

and it’s cold
cold on this side of the road
cold on this side of the road
the last words you wrote

as your coal black eyes

clocks tick backwards
now sunset is dawn
night nourishes worries ignored
and when I’m all thumbs
the sun’s just a hole in the sky

and it’s cold
cold on this side of the road
cold on this side of the road
cold on this side of the road
the last words you wrote
