The Old Man's Blues



the looming mother is another gray goddess
the sky has perception when she is the hottest
faraway winter is in the basement
mixing cocktails for the old man's blues

the lover climbing is a fantasy project
you lie in the clouds until you can touch it
she is upon you and takes you to paris
she leaves you in a café with the old man's blues

time is a mission
time is a race
time leaves you everywhere
all over the place
remember your lovers
in the distant rushes
the hand of the goddess
sometimes it crushes
love

naked perfection in the hour of summer
lay down in eden with a gentle lover
the earth and the sun and the laughing rain
you wake up alone with the old man's blues

the mystery cousin rides a distant train
she's at the window with the mark of cain
love is eternal but not down here
it's au revoir for the old man's blues

time is a mission
time is a race
time leaves you everywhere
all over the place
remember your lovers
in the distant rushes
the hand of the goddess
sometimes it crushes
love

the looming mother is another gray goddess
the sky has perception when she is the hottest
faraway winter is in the basement
mixing cocktails for the old man's blues

the lover climbing is a fantasy project
you lie in the clouds until you can touch it
she is upon you and takes you to paris
she leaves you in a café with the old man's blues
