about

Inspired by Wooden Ships, After the Goldrush

lyrics

For all the times the saucers landed in the park
Without incident, comment or concern
& every day we were not frightened by the thought
That we had visitors curious to learn
Let that innocence come again
Is it just the way things go
& turn aside the schemes of men
Are we better than we know?
We’ve been so banished from ourselves
That our fear is like perfume

The paranoia never fit us very well,
I always thought it was a sop to keep us down
The years of silence that descended on us all
Could not damp the fires moving underground
Let the changes now appear
High above these prison walls
Let the silver ones draw near
It’s the same sun on us all
The prisons will not hold us now
You cannot leave an empty room

But
We are leaving you
& we are listening too
We are leaving you
& we are listening too

As our ship comes into view
We turn and look back from the shore
To watch your mighty towers fall
Now we’re stepping through the door

And
We are leaving you
& we are listening too
We are leaving you
& we are listening too
We are leaving you
& we are listening too
We are leaving you
& we are listening too
