lyrics

I am walking a dark forest
down from the shoulder
of a mountain
and the edges of my lamplight
are catching motion
and the fire of my imagining
is picking up the dark edge
and seeing horses
prostrate people
hats on branches
familiar faces.
Mmm-mm hmm-hm
While in the light I see
there are traces:
broken plastic,
a knarled hair brush,
empty shotgun shells,
head of a razor –
this place, just touched by junk
in the light and
in the dark.

And under damp leaves
the projections of armies
through ripening passages
are now stirring.
And whose names will follow?
Whose hearts will soften
to the charge
of what they don’t know?
mm- mmm hmm –hmm
mm-mm hmm-hmm

Back in town I saw
a girl too young for me
sitting with short shorts on
hugging her long thigh.
mm-mm hmm hmm
mmm-mmm hmmm-hmmm

And the rhythm of a pair of legs
once set in motion
towards a warm sensation
could keep walking.

And the rhythm of a pair of legs
once set in motion
towards a warm sensation
could keep walking.

Oh legs don’t you want to go?
Oh legs don’t you want to go?

Oh legs don’t you want to go?
Oh legs don’t you want to go?

I am walking a dark forest
down from the shoulder
of a mountain.
And who’s names will follow
In the eddies of my lamplight
and catching the motion
find their hearts softened?
And see-sawing horses,
prostrate bodies
through ripening passages
are now streaming.
And the fire of my imagining
is picking up the dark edge-
under damp leaves
the projections of armies-
and familiar faces
hanging from branches-
and hugging a long thigh
and not knowing.
mmm-mm hmmh-hmm
mmm-mmm hm-hmm

And the rhythm of a pair of legs
once set in motion
towards a warm sensation
could keep walking.

And the rhythm of a pair of legs
once set in motion
towards a warm sensation
could keep walking.
