PROPHECY

lyrics

ONCE FELL ASLEEP
SHADE PECAN TREE
SHE SPOKE TO ME
AND WHEN AWAKE
WALK TO A LAKE
THERE SEE A SNAKE
I THOUGHT THAT THE SNAKE WAS ME
YOU LAKE
I WAS BLIND I COULD NOT SEE
YOU'RE TREE

THE SNAKE WILL HANG FROM THE TREE
THE LAKE WILL REFLECT THE LEAVES
THE TREE OBSCURES WHAT IS SEEN
THIS IS MY PROPHECY FOR YOU

I FIRST SAW YOU
ONE OF THESE DAYS
YOU WERE A CAVE
AEGEAN SEA
YOU THEN ASKED ME
WHAT THEN IS ME
BLIND BAT WHO CAN'T SEE
GOD CAME TO GIDEON ROBED
IN SHADE
AND SPOKE SO SOFTLY TO GO
ON RAID
LOOK TO THE WHEAT FLOOR YOU'LL KNOW
OKAY
GIDEON SAID I DON'T KNOW

MORNING TRAIN LEAVES YOU BEHIND
EUSTACIA VYE ON YOUR MIND
YOU'RE SINGING CRUEL TO BE KIND
IN WAKING DREAMS WE MAY FIND
LOVE HAS NO SEED AND NO RIND
THIS IS MY PROPHECY FOR YOU

WHEN IN GREAT DEMAND
YOU PLAYED YOUR HAND AND LOST YOUR MAN
NOW I'M ON YOUR TRAIL
IN LINE LIKE QUAIL SALE SLIMY TRAIL OF SNAIL
MOBS HAVE NO REMORSE
THEY CAN'T BE FORCED TO GIVE UP TORCH
BUT IF WE'RE JUST FANS
WE HAVE NO PLAN AND CAN DISBAND

I FOUND YOU
I LOST YOU

1ST AVENUE YOU FELT SO WARM IN THE BAR LIGHT
SUNLIGHT IN YOUR HAIR
YOUR BIG BLUE ROOM WITH THE BLONDE BIRCH FLOOR
I STRETCHED OUT AND RETURNED YOUR STARE

I FOUND YOU
I LOST YOU
MY BRIGHT LESSONS

WHEN IN GREAT DEMAND
YOU PLAYED YOUR HAND AND LOST YOUR MAN
NOW I'M ON YOUR TRAIL
IN LINE LIKE QUAIL SALE SLIMY TRAIL OF SNAL

I FOUND YOU
I LOST YOU
MY BRIGHT LESSONS
