lyrics

Where did the mind's eye come to be
It must have been a big blink
I want to know what you think

Searching for some happiness
In a lonely time
in a sea of darkness

I’ll take the comfort as it comes
Forget about the doldrums
If only for a moment

Whatcha gonna do when your screws get loose
Whatcha gonna do with a loose screw
Whatcha gonna do when your screw gets loose
Hey you in the tool shed
Whatcha building

Drink the water from the rose
Never to be thirsty
Never to be rusty

Things like flowers smartly wired
Right into the fabric
With little threads of magic

Feel the ground breathing on my bare feet
Glad I swept up all the nails
From that rotten handrail

Holler in the key of seize and squeeze
Follow with a lower frequency
In the afternoon I'll catch ya on the downstream
The heat in me noggin’ gonna need some coolin’

I don't mind the rain at all
It has a natural certainty
like every small eternity

I don't mind the black flies buzzin’
It keeps me on my toes
it keeps me up and running

And I never been a slave to a long deep freeze
but this winter just might break me
This winter just might break me
This winter just might break me

Won't you skate away with me
I'll catch you on the downstream

Just a small eternity
Just a small eternity…
