Blessed Speed

from Songs For Creeps by Amy Annelle



recorded and mixed by Brian Beattie at The Old Wonder Chamber, Austin, Texas


we started out into "The Great Starting-Out" again
black habits to match the halos floating over our heads
and speed! enough blessed speed to keep us up for weeks
well, alright.

and what of this speed?
it's what you need, and I need it too.
the blackness stays behind if we just keep moving.
well, alright.

lost you when i lost it, I don't know this way.
but a white line runs behind me, so you can come and find me...
okay? well alright!

we started out into "The Great Starting-Out" and then
my favorite blue-eyed savior has come to me again.
the late twinings finally tied up into something.
well, alright.
