Green, purple and green
The Magpie turns as I freeze
Why didn't you wrap up?
I had us all in floods

All these times were weatherproof
Heavy times so weatherproof...
For me, not you.

From creosote, to when we were shaken
Dead fire coal as the spring unfolds,
a familiar, beautiful wasted space

Why didn't this stack up?
All these times were weather proof
And I dive in, for me, not you.

Wonderland, we're holding hands,
somewhere between a dead charade and a glue eyed dance.

But then my face was painted in sorrow
In green, purple and green.

I'm lost in this stream when I dive.
