Random Blues

They swung too far left

They landed on the right

Say, they swung too far to the left

And they landed on the right

Furious winds behind their sails

They lost their bearing, then their sprite

 

 

Unable to dream himself

He became an interpreter of dreams

Hen hen, unable to dream himself

He became an interpreter of dreams

He lost his covenant with the river

Now he seeks the blessing of vagrant streams

 

Menacing like a badly pulled tooth

Painful like an own goal

Say, menacing like a badly pulled tooth

Painful like an own goal

Life’s race drips with sweat

From poll to distant poll

 

 

We are not at war with peace

We are only at peace with war

Hear? We are not at war with peace

We are only at peace with war

Tongue-twisting our way to perfidy

In ways frankly dubious and fatally raw

 

 

 

Tell a lie countless times

And watch it become the truth

Hear? Tell a lies countless times

And watch it become the truth

Your famous house of falsehood

Is like a mouth without a single tooth
