  Artist List   /   mewithoutYou   /   It's All Crazy! It's All False! It's All A Dream! It's Alright


09. Cattail Down

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


Cattail Down
The morning rail yard whistle blows
Cattail Down
Our boxcar bound for no-one-knows
After every hidden seed out from its covering has been freed
And every book has been discarded from the bookshelf
Cattail Down
In the forgetting of myself

Cattail Down
Replace the feathers in our vest
Cattail Down,
Surround the ivy that's gone to poison in my chest
"The parachute broke loose!," cried the goose
With misplaced (but understandable) concern
For his little brother's mental health
His happy little brother
In the forgetting of himself

Cattail Down
Around the bulrush the pollen shed
Cattail Down
To dress my wounds, it left a bee sting in their stead

Headed east out of St. Paul, we stopped for water
Rested in the cemetery, watched the Mississippi
Running out of food stamps found a bag along the footpath
Off of Highway 61 filled with what looked like marijuana
(Don't worry, Mom, we left it there)
Hopped a grainer out of Pig's Eye toward Milwaukee
The deer between the tower and the tracks saw right through us
Said, "You don't know where you came from
You don't know where you're going.
You think you're you?
No, you don't know who you are
You're not you
You're everyone else

You're everyone else
