Heavy Flag (2018)

HEAVY FLAG

 

VERSE 1

I shiver like a paper bag The cold can wave a heavy flag And nothing shines like silver lines When everyone’s a paradigm And all around is double speak, I hide it in a troubled sleep In mountains bare on pavement plain In waves of pesticided grain

CHORUS 1

I recognize the truth when it shakes hands with self-deceit Pays for my beliefs and throws away the receipt It’s all in my head, and then it’s nestled at my feet Heavy flag

 

VERSE 2

A farrago of motion sick A turbulence arithmetic We passed a thousand billboard signs And trampled over columbines But how do we choke down the pain? With nicotine to tease the brain Our bladed lives with softened edge, We pop our pills and speak our pledge

 

CHORUS 2

I recognize the truth when it shakes hands with self-deceit Pays for my beliefs and throws away the receipt It’s all in my head, and then it’s nestled at my feet Heavy flag SOLO VERSE 3 Our sympathy’s a symphony But everyone is out of key Cause we locked the doors and turned the blinds And left it to the focused eye We dug a shallow rabbit’s grave Deposited our given names
And when our pride was railroad flat Shook away the warmth of a welcome mat

 

CHORUS 3

I recognize the truth when it shakes hands with self-deceit Pays for my beliefs and throws away the receipt It’s all in my head, and then it’s nestled at my feet Heavy flag (repeat)
