words and music by vanessa lowe

ship of fools in a bathtub
ragged rowboats cresting catastrophic waves
beacons ringing out sad tunes
melancholy notes rising like balloons

i can see you, almost see you
through the photographs in the photo album
in between the plastic sheeting
underneath the caption in your faded writing

just a porcelain tea cup
no more tea leaves but the cracks hold stories of their own
of both prairie and mean streets
with a lover and once all the lovers have gone

oh the hands of the clock held us safe in our lives
time is short and the hoarding of words is a crime
oh the world is a wild place to grow wise

ship of fools in the ocean
spinning toward the center
blind before bad weather
lost to all but the lone moon
holding motionless in spite of knowing better


from Stars of Bean Hollow, released September 25, 2012
