I can’t stop the earth from quaking I can only mend the seam – With thread I am made a singer by trade I’m a regular sewing machine

The truth is in the garden so dig a hole and pour your heart into whatever you dreamed you would become

Truth is in the Garden

When roads feel like fences with towns as the posts – when we live in a circus where the clowns are all ghosts – and our love pulls off a disappearing act. It’s like a fortune teller with nothing to see – flying becomes the falling trapeze – and the magician can’t find nothing in his hat
