16 - bear trap - vampire deer

December 30, 2017 10:59 AM

still thinking about it all - this is the last song on the album - time, perhaps, to have more fun ...

red pill, blue pill, yellow pill, green pill, black
going to take a walk to jordan, brother, don't know if i'll ever come back
the fates have put something in my chalice and i drank it all
the sky shines like easter and a voice is saying last call

i saw a film of you walking back and forth in an old bear pit
pretending to be feral and confused but that wasn't it
be careful how you paint yourself, be careful how you paint the walls
you'll lose your soul wandering in a maze of broken halls

welcome to the matrix, forget about what you used to know
jordan is shimmering and it's past time to go
the fates have put something in my chalice and i drank it all
the sky shines like easter and a voice is saying last call

we were going to take that bus, we were going to drive it out of town
looking for america, or just a small part that wasn't going down
but it's still the same old boxes, still the same old signs
why couldn't we learn to read between the highway lines?

take a pinch of magic and tell your old flame that you aren't here
but jordan's going nowhere and to jordan you will steer
the fates have put something in my chalice and i drank it all
the sky shines like easter and a voice is saying last call

days pass, years pass and the thoughts you had fade away
one of us survived and the other sank into clay
you couldn't learn to be the stranger and i was born in that role
one road or another, life is a scalding of the soul

i don't know where we've gone, i'm not even sure where we've been
don't want to go to jordan but of course i'm going in
the fates have put something in my chalice and i drank it all
the sky shines like easter and a voice is saying last call
