lyrics

we ply in maps
we are certain that the world fits on a page
in a poem
and believe that what we see
doesn't slip into the discontinuities
we use to lead our children through
this quaint diorama

we are real people living in our imagination
at simile speed
failing to keep up with a life led beyond
a metaphor's needs
that sheds and reissues all that continues
without seams
the dispersal of seeds

we are all sages and saints waiting to happen
we are real people living in our imagination
and it is more beautiful than can be expected
but we scratch and sniff at our books
in attempts for the actual scent
lord, we try to fade into the sky
but we come home alone
we come home small
cuz no belief has any meat at all...
