I havent got the words or soul to pray
And as I compose my music to play.
I realise I am out of mourning and tunes The only black I wear today is in the grand piano heart attack I cannot say the tradgiedieties occur in three Shiva is sleeping Kali is lazy And god to drunk to care.
Cause love is just laid aside rotting on the shelf She might have though I have grown cold and distant like some abstract Geography Its just love like tales of childhood lay forgotten I walked into the zoo And a little girl asked if the elephants were sad and her father Replied yes How can you be sad if your painting emotion with your trunk And I realized that it is also the heart You paint with all the soul and the picture is a side affect Parts of the old zoo still remain faded figures like the elephants lonely And I wonder if my uncle last words are in the whispers of the leaves And the life of my brother who is all the life my uncle embraced And If wonder if my loves last words will be all the email erased And the flickering screen But I hold on and I donâ€™t even know What joys mean anymore.
