lyrics

Struck like a white light. A match, a flame ignites
the jailbreak of a thought so plain that we never saw it hiding in the inkblot where it lay
where it lay, on a whim. I would have never suspected it

Plans stretched out across the landscape. Not one blueprint takes shape
Ten more blocks of urban prairie taking space up in your mind

Raised the stakes when you made those claims. A “truth” all set to be ordained
But like orphaned socks and impossibly tangled knots
You can’t stop interference from breeding in the dark
In the dark, on a whim. I don’t think he suspected it

Plans stretched out across the landscape. Not one blueprint takes shape
Ten more blocks of urban prairie taking space up in your mind
And all this time seemed so sublime.

A darkness deep, most comforting. Go sleep it off. Reset it.

If I saw him on this day I wrote down every word I’d say but it would come ten years too late
I spent too long hanging out among the trees, too long drifting out along the breeze

Plans stretched out across the landscape. Not one blueprint takes shape
Ten more blocks of urban prairie taking space up in your mind
And all this time seemed so sublime.
