04. Goodbye, I!

It's All Crazy! It's All False! It's All A Dream! It's Alright
by mewithoutYou



 

The farmer drove his tractor where the soil had been tilled
Planting corn in rank and file from the silo to the lumber mill
He rode along in silence as he looked out past the honeysuckle field
Watched the water turn the waterwheel
Started thinking about his daughter with affection, her reaction of disdain
The day he replaced the blue hydrangea with the climbing frame
While her disappointed sister looked on quiet as the snow
Knowing well that those who know don’t talk and those who talk don’t know

But she couldn't help but sing
She couldn't help but sing
Oh, she couldn't help but sing
She couldn't help but sing
She tried and couldn't help but sing
She couldn't help but sing
Oh, she couldn't help but sing
She couldn't help but sing

The tortoise in the wheelchair wrapped his forehead in a bandage
And a cast they made of plaster for his phony broken leg
So he’d get pushed around the sidewalk by the zookeeper’s assistant
With the hummingbird observing from behind a yellow flower
And he flapped his tiny wings, they moved so fast you couldn’t see them
With resentment for the tortoise (which was clear by his expression)
But the tortoise turned and smiled with a peacefulness which proved
That there’s a movement in our stillness and however much we move

We're bound to stand completely still
We stand completely still
We all stand completely still
We stand completely still
Let's all stand completely still
Let's stand completely still
Let's all stand completely still
Let's stand completely still

Come, Tortoise, standing still
Go, Hummingbird, my will
Come, Tortoise, stumbling blind
Go, Hummingbird, my eyes
Come, Tortoise, letting go
Go, Hummingbird, I know
Come Tortoise undefined
Go, Hummingbird, my mind
Come Tortoise, empty hands
Go, Hummingbird, my plans,
Come, Tortoise, come and die
Go, Hummingbird, my I
Goodbye, I
Bye, I
Bye, I
Bye, I
Bye, bye
