LYRICS


CORNROWS

We are born into cornrows
Strewn all over this green cornfield
Looking out toward the side of the road
I wonder where that road could possibly go

We will build a scarecrow
Set him down by the side of the road
Build him out of soft ribbons and bows
Someday he will walk out into this world

Hello I am this cornfield's scarecrow
The unromantic character or so I am told
Won't you run your fingers down my soft ribbons and bows
I would love to run away with you but it is here I set my soul

Wandering from town to town on my own two feet
Dreams lying naked between sheets
This time I was the scarecrow
Inside of a cornfield


THOUGHTS ON A WAKE

Rainy day, you took the smiles away
Left with a frown on my face I think of what he would say...
I love new taste
Another new face
I'm even attracted to the wicked witch
Whore and bitch
However everyone is a hypocrite
Hiding behind blue eyes like Eve's
With the ugly troll under the bridge

Sunshine lost in a maze
Listen to the organ player play
Playing to a black box
Moving toward a lonely grave
Rainy day, are you only the tears of his loose lover maid
Are you only the tears that his loose lover has made


MOBIUS

Grow your garden well
Shake the seeds off of the trees
Who have stories to tell
If you are smart you will let them fall
I let them all fall
Because I know they will be reborn
Under the same sunny skies

We are all just kings and queens in our own time
If you are not a face card in their hand
You can be a face card in mine
Thrown in the jungle our seeds are sown
Like my forefathers I grow
Grow and grow


Bells Of Lawrence McDonald
