Bought a Bride
Trees will make a forest Trees will make a bow These are all the harder Words you have to know If everyone's a structure Where their own savior sits I'm a little red house But no one's living in it Cars are little blood cells We are oxygen City is the airways Suburbs appendages She was feeling lonely Tired of the hive Rented out a family And he bought a bride Bought a bride Bought a bride Bought a bride Little cities' names on very lonely maps They tied her up and laid her on the train tracks Where are all the seedlings We grew for violins? Down in Jersey lumber Still in prosthetic limbs Should've been a soldier I could've fought and died There's no revolution So I bought a bride Bought a bride Bought a bride Bought a bride Coming down the aisle while the horns play Taps They tied her up and laid her on the train tracks If somehow I was new and everything was unsaid I'd go and buy a hammer, never sing again Sleeping on a stairway Dreamt I had a boat Sailed it out the harbor Shot it full of holes Folded up my prayer book I couldn't see the lines Drowning in a kelp bed I bought a bride.
