Little red colt, why you in the water?
Little blue float snaking through the atmosphere
Little blue streak descended on your daughter
and I told her
She’s heavy on the tongue
And gonna need a wagon wheel

Cardinal sin
Cardinal direction
Cardinal song is melancholy made of tin
When your angel turns ghost and offers your intention
But I told her
is it worth the fun
that now you don’t know how to feel

Why you gotta run so far from me
Why you gotta go so far ahead
If there’s truth in secret to his alchemy, you’d be better dead
You’d be better dead

Silent as a kite dancing for a stranger
Devil on the drone bartering a better deal
Swallowing sighs, spitting at the ranger
For once I’ve gone a little dumb
pushing on the wagon wheel

Soon you’ll be a quaking crow cacauphony
who sees it fit to open close the sky
and barks his orders hard back at the cavalry
and you’d be better blind
you’d be better blind

It sounds like
It sounds like
It sounds like

Try to do the thing instead

Oooooooh—It sounds like
Ooooooooh—It sounds like
oooooooooh—It sounds like
Try to do the thing instead

This is the noise from the inside of a root. ... more
