lyrics

There was a fire in the barn
and now it's time to go away
Our neighbors never fall asleep
but we'd've spared them anyway
The fire's spreading to the town
there's nowhere left to run away
and we must gather all our things
it's bound to follow wishes made

Where do the lines of our boundaries go
dislodged by seldom nights alone
A few sheets to the wind is still dry as bone
betraying signs of abandoning hope

It keeps repeating the same way
I wake composed and lay down frayed
& we must never fall asleep
there is a fortune to be made
We used to go another way
but shortcuts soon became a plain
Our forms would disappear and change
but who's to say what has remained

How does the psalm of the quandaries go
Diminished and rote inhabiting roles
but what you condemn and what you condone
intentions bereft of immaculate homes

Now I'm getting old and grey
but I'm still hoping that one day
I'll come across my one true love
and he'll look at me and say
My love it's time to go away
cause there is nowhere left to stay
Our neighbors borrowed all our sleep
and now this debt they will repay
