Recorded and mastered at Strange Weather by Alex DeTurk


I am thinking of the time
we were sitting in your backyard
back in spring, 2009

and a cloud came
to console the sky
said, "You've got a lot of dying
left to do before you die"

and the rain came
to console the roofs
said, "You've got a lot of morning
left before the afternoon

and you can just lie there
let your thoughts detune
let your life go out of focus
it doesn't matter what you do"

and the moon stayed
to console the sun
said, "You've got a lot of lying
left to do before you're done

and I know you are scared now
that you'll be found out
but don't worry they can't prove it
past a reasonable doubt"

and I stayed
thinking I would console you
tell you something so pretty
that it would have to be true

but I'll have a lot of letdowns
before I learn my worth
and there are no consolations
to be had upon the earth
