Joanna Newsom....So do we die or do we travel?....

Down the path by which one dabbles in the arts
of antediluvian crafts
with yarn and glue
So gather twilight to your breast
and couch
the rabble-rouser's nest
and we will take a day
of rest
and we will all be heaven-blessed and we
will gather round to dine
and pass the time
with wicked rhymes
and toast in dandelion wines
To hear their mellifluous chimes
we toast
the fallow furrows that we sow,
we toast the monies
that we owe, oh, oh
,we toast the creditors
we daily face
who topple down with gruesome grace
And we toast the aristocrats with blood of blue

Because we know our collars are that colour too

And we toast the artisans of antediluvian crafts

With yarn and glue....

  1. Do you know what this is son?
    This is the panopticon
    And all around us blink the brash
    And shifty eyes of common cash
    In the arts of antediluvian crafts....
