A
Boy
Named
River

How quickly we forget

It took me two long years

to push that fever up alright

I want to see you smile again

and get you high

Bet I can


Get on the bus

and set off

into the great wide open


Here we are

King and queen

of our secret world

(This takes me back)

In the flush

of being us


Get on the bus

and set off

into the great wide open


And yes

I can see those skeletons hanging and dangling

carry me

from the ceiling in this place called

unseen

Downtown

from this vile place

Downtown

where I’ve been


Get on the bus

and set off

into the great wide open

How quickly you forget

you’re in love


Always love


That’s how the missing ones are found

Let’s call her V. for now

To wake a dreaming mind let’s add another line

Questions of travel

Point au chien behind it all

Death herself is paring her fingernails
