Trout Fishing In America – Spider's Fence lyrics

Nothing last forever, and forever don't last long.
It was over in a heartbeat and over with the singing of a love song.
Angles in a canvas try to minimize the threat,
Time's a lovely filter, and I can still recall the fears that I felt.

(Chorus:) Dance your way through the spider's fence, and never look Medusa in the eye.
You might call it self-defense, but no matter what you call it, it's goodbye.
I saw the image in the mirror; I didn't recognize myself,
Severed from a childhood, it seemed like someone else,
Picked up all the pieces, put that box back on the shelf and just kept goin' on, I kept goin' on.
