lyrics

I don’t have pictures
only Hearsay and Lore
about my days of shameless fright
for losing the moon at dawn

burned down all the meadows
just to see the stars
set up camp in dusty ashes
smoke smothered soul in the ground

goodness aches in time
and cowers in these bloodshot eyes
veins break with abandon
taking blood to this reckless mind of mine

dug a ditch in back
but our shovels were spoons
fell to the bottom of that wholesome fortress
where my goodness is safe in solitude

crawled out, dirt on nose
she wiped it off with her thumb
straight to the earth up sprung those meadows
surely, they would never burn

well goodness aches in time
and cowers in these bloodshot eyes
veins break with abandon
taking blood to this reckless mind of mine

to survive
the flood that washed away a child
misty mild
skin sweats the cold chilling sound
am I home?

there won’t be pictures
only Hearsay and Lore
for goodness aches in the meadow’s soil
and the seeds will sow the tale

goodness aches in time
and cowers in these bloodshot eyes
veins break with abandon
taking blood to this reckless mind of mine
