lyrics

The lines on the map were vanishing
Demarcations of banishment
What became of the vessel is a mystery
Lights arising from beneath the sea

The crimes were ascribed to noble men
But paid for by the innocent
On a pilgrimage to the Orient
Running up a tab when the money's all spent

Silver chain on his watch & embroidered seams
The second hand ticks in centuries
The low hanging fruit warded off the good deeds
& the raindrops fell like apostrophes

The slave to evolution was heaven sent
A raven haired mistress that never said where she went
So easy to control, if only up to an extent
Sacrificing all self-governance

Her feet were cloven
& her pants were wet
Her palate was chosen
In shades of regret

She made a lunge for the color
Clearly in debt
Relying on memory
Clearly bereft

Felt the thunder before they heard a sound
Standing in the fields just looking around
Lightning emanated up from her crown
Just passing the time is a battleground

—J. Breeden
