Hangman cometh, Iceman, Shark
your hand's too slippery, sound's too dark
I’m falling falling falling falling
way down

Upside down and blue foot too
The ticks too loud to fight with you
And I’m alright
I’m patient, too

So go and ask the paint man why
all the navy and the gold and crimson

You’re a turtle with a tiger’s eye
You catch the brightening, the bold and dimming, why
would you ever turn around again?


Road goes snaking out behind
and up in front
the dirt is mine
my oyster, cloister, boisterous receiver

Hatches open hanging out
befall, believe me, see me out
we’ll all remark your grace as you are leaving

And you could have a good long cry
Fill a moat so you can float down easy

you’re a turtle with a tiger’s eye
you catch the bellow in the hell bent season, why
would you ever turn around again?
