i tried to carve you out of granite
found you later, glass and sand
lightning divots in your chest
thunderbolt in hand

at the indian pool
all red, yellow, and blue
the trees, the sky, and the face of a fool
broken the surface
broken by passage
broken by time
three goats and a bridge and a charred boardwalk
and my own wall of coals
coming back from the goldrush
east to new england
my heart of clay

snow is grey
there is no time to waste
there is no time
sun is down
all the leaves green must brown
there is no time to waste
there is no time

well I know
you want to find a place to
call your own
but baby,
you’ve gotta know that home is always in my arms

snow is grey
your cheeks
are red as clay
we’re sweating
at the break of day
in our own time
leaves are brown
everybody’s fallen down
we burned down your childhood town
at the end of the day

so come you now to
final ardor
and with our eyes
surely see
sights of glowing
ruby harbor
your skin is suited
right for me
