Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

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

No More Room For Little Lies



they told me all the dreams are over
they told me just you better cry
leave behind the hall of wonders
no more room for little lies

no more sand men in the castles
no more shadows on the wall
the giants are all quiet
no more footsteps in the hall

but the blue dog often lingers
you can see him in the night
the blue dog has a presence
but he vanishes in light

goodbye to corner people
goodbye to turning men
say goodbye to what's becoming
say goodbye again, again

goodbye
goodbye
goodbye

i heard him barking in the kitchen
stuck behind the maze of jars
there are cobwebs in this vision
beneath a canopy of stars

the ceiling was a great pretender
it opened up and i was high
now the universe delivers
we are all up in the sky

hello
hello
hello
what is this up in the sky?

they put trinkets in the pantry
where the cans all used to sit
ballerinas and tin soldiers
they never move a bit

into gardens in the backyard
into the secret places there
little children in their dramas
say goodbye, they are not there

goodbye to corner people
goodbye to turning men
say goodbye to what's becoming
say goodbye again, again

goodbye
goodbye
goodbye

they told me all the dreams are over
they told me just you better cry
leave behind the hall of wonders
no more room for little lies

no more sand men in the castles
no more shadows on the wall
the giants are all quiet
no more footsteps in the hall

but the blue dog often lingers
you can see him in the night
the blue dog has a presence
but he vanishes in light

++++
