Superwise - Live

from Paradiso in the Moonlight by Ken Stringfellow

lyrics

One seventh nitrogen
Lips so swollen, try again, try again
There were others, but I think I could forget them, forget them

Rotating like a single cell in a heart pump lying in a spent fuel well
I’m an engine of mercy in search of a sail
My frame won’t float, water runs off the rail
Real time echoes landing right in front of the source
I’m an endless amusement, an abandoned race course
Skyline adjusting the to edge of the park
Let the lions lay me down, now, I’m lighting off with the larks

Time, make me superwise
Make all my choices anodyne
Just laugh at me when you want to reduce me, but
I’m summer’s high

I gotta get outta here
I’m just flesh pulled thru skin and a lazy tear
Nine worlds to conquer, interior, interior, interior

Blood flows, but the limbs are still cold
It’s a death sentence if you know how far north you can go
I’m a teenage monolith, and I forgo pleasure for the sake of a whim
It starts when the swallows all abandon their nests
Just to line up for handouts they can feed to their pets, and
Everybody thought it was cool
Til the blood banks pressed us down and carbon made us a jewel

Time, make me superwise
Make all my choices anodize
Just laugh at me when you want to reduce me, but
I’m summer’s high
I refuse to go quietly down

All I said was sorry but now I’m saying thank you thank you thank you
All I said was sorry but now I’m saying thank you thank you thank you
All I said was sorry but now I’m sorry I said it
