lyrics

There’s a color in your mythology
That grays the filter in the collective sight of things
I was distracted and I went into the hall
Of 30th street station to be dwarfed by the sound

When I say, “you’re killing me”
You know in some ways it’s true
You know the year I’ve had
You want to spread your wings
You want to push away
You want to cook your own book

You say you’re soaring eagles
But you’re barn owls
Undercover
Folded forever
With the barn owls

People are unwittingly prepared
To change everything about themselves
To satisfy the impulse
The fresh impulse
Of one tense moment

I’m at the back of the train
Feels like it’s heading for space
I’m going to miss work again
I tried and tried to explain
And so I’m deep in your debt
I want to cook my own book

You say you’re soaring eagles
But you’re barn owls
Undercover
Folded forever
With the barn owls
