or the song of this summer

warm month of january, sparrows dive bomb to the ground
paw paw debates the redskins, my soul's in the lost and found
i dreamt the grateful dead had a song if you only believe
but wild and weird as everything is, i'm still going to have to leave
(brother gates sang of the black death train, oh yeah)
warm month of january, maybe it'll snow like crazy next week
maybe the prophets will play hide and seek, can we play hide and seek?
i kind of feel like i'm fading right along with the world i knew
and there's no way to summon god to court so i can sue

I love how this starts (and how it continues), with what seemed at first a random clatter of chords, resolving into a rhythm upon their first repetition. I thought of the aural equivalent of an optical illusion dissolving before one's stare.

Well anyway, the conjuring trick worked for me ... smarter ears, I don't doubt, will fail to share my ignorance. But not, I think, my enjoyment!
