heaventown

Dim me mellow
A constant look away

Just ordinary fellows
Chipped their coins in and never played

Down the street to heaventown
They ask good souls to look around
Are you whispered
Are you found

Or do you swing it
Upsidedown

The view was never better
And you’re missing all the fun
Envelopes drip honey
Jimmy never gets his gun

And Jack and Jill erupt
For yet another silent run

Down the street to heaventown
They ask good souls to look around
Are you whispered
Are you found

Are you cemented to your ground

The soup is plain
The dogs are tired
Walls go insane
Wings catch on fire

Windows open slowly
For the doors that you slammed shut
And dreams deserved swing lowly
Past what time forgets to cut

Down the street to heaventown
They ask good souls to look around
Are you whispered
Are you found

Are you free? Or are you bound

Do you breathe the silence
Do you eat the sound

Do you suffer up your gravestone
For a birth that circles ‘round

Find what’s up
And live what’s down
Dream the dreams of heaventown
Just take your penny for a pound
Screw the master
Praise the hound
Drink your dessert
From lost and found

They’ll never understand it
Those that bravely paved the way
Just ordinary fellows
Chipped their coins in and never played

Down the streets to heaventown
Now they charge to look around
Give your blood
And bleed your ground
It’s all the same
For heaventown
