We found each other blown between the trees,
Waning moons wanting to be swallowed by the sea
Like we finally saw the colors
of the world

We grew the garden snake within the weeds,
Laid each other long across a flat back street
Like we finally saw the colors
of the world

We felt the sun leave us for the west,
And the lips always walking farther from the breast
Like we finally saw the colors
of the world

We ran a white flag up the mast,
Puckered up like a widow gleaming in the grass
Like we finally saw the colors
of the world

Like we saw black, like we saw black and blue
You my blues
Like we saw black, like we saw (brown green?) too
You saw an offer but its over too soon(?)

Like we saw black, running
I found you in
Like we saw black, lying in golden white(?)

We threw our money to the river stone
Led each other to the woods to wander back alone
Like we finally saw the colors of the world

We let the taste linger in the mouth,
South Chicago never gave us more to sing about
Like we finally saw the colors of the world
