This story is past tense, and I did not want my cover blown.

Thought well enough was left alone.

And who decided you'd rescue me?

Yeah, I do agree, a bent and broken set are we.


Up in a tree you're stuck.

And the only lights off the wire are all the moths in the fire.

Can't you feel how the air is getting dry?

Try, but can't identify what you start to think.


Baby won't go out at night.

They took apart the Angels Flight for this

strange season.


Did you feel the change from cold to hot?
With fever you will have a bout.
And all you do is talk about the meaning of the walkabout.
There I go again, a taste of my own medicine.


So shake your head and look around.

The leaves don't fall, there's still no sound to this strange season.

Then I start to think:

I've seen it through, I saw the sights.

Disassembled Angels Flight for this

strange season.


Do you want to know that it comes down to this?

Do you want to hear that ignorance is bliss

Ignorance is bliss

Ignorance is bliss

Ignorance is bliss.
