lyrics

i fell my family tree, my dendrochronology
i'm listed in between boxcars and Sicily
once, twice, three times i rake the leaves
four, five, six times they whisper 'cross the breeze

i float across the street and photograph the cemetery
and there below my feet: Charlotte & Emory
once, twice, three times i sow the seeds
four, five, six times i harvest weeds

that pale pavilion, in the twilight eventide
it fades into vermillion, as the june bugs suffocate july.

i miss my empty room, underneath the widow's walk
i miss the afternoon, when i used to lay with you
once, twice, three times before you sleep
four, five, six times the gravity

i see a vision of a thousand symphonies
that drift upon a daydream, and off to Ganymede
that pale pavilion, in the twilight evening sky
it fades into vermillion, as the june bugs suffocate july.
