Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

Song For Buster's Face



Vinyl Shoes

Every one of us in front
Looking for what's next to come
Who is driving, who's in charge?
Is it all just river-run?

Something lays upon the tracks
Cannot tell if it can move
Train is coming down so fast
Like a needle in the groove
We are wearing vinyl shoes

And the chorus is
and the chorus really is
and the music is
all the music of our lives
all the music of our lives
all the music of our lives

And the hills go up and down
Did the forests all surrender
Did we stop to taste the tears
Or just head out on a bender

Is there really only one
Who is dancing in the all
Who is waiting on the tracks
While we're waiting for a fall
Like a needle in the groove
We are wearing vinyl shoes

And the chorus is
and the chorus really is
and the music is
all the music of our lives
all the music of our lives
all the music of our lives

Like a needle in the groove
We are wearing vinyl shoes*

*Picture, if you will, a train circling on a vinyl record, round and round and round...
