lyrics

the grace is gone
and along with it, the goodwill
we've inventoried what's ours
and locked it up

blue lights
flashing pictures quickly
and oh boy
did they get you cheaply
you're lonely cause you're never alone

and in lines and rows
we head home

i want to be the scenery
the birds, the clouds and the trees
i want to be the scenery
the birds, the clouds and the trees

and in lines and rows
we head home

* * *
there was a pretty blue lake i found
and in this early light
i could not see bottom

all around it birds are waking
and warming up their singing voices
their voices form a warning chorus

* * *

and in lines and rows
we head home
back to the beds we made
of shit and stone
and oh, how safe and sound
for now, for now, for now...
