    Been in this cloud three years now,
    guess there's really not much to tell.
    I hear melodies in dreams,
    fitful, or lucid, or wide awake
    driving two-lane blacktops
    through corn stubble, hanging groves of
    black oaks dribbled on the wide flat land,
    suspicious crows overflown
    by V's of cranes, grey against grey,
    in November overcast.

    Yeah, melodies, harmonies, stories,
    psychedelic, Gothic, septic, caustic,
    memories, modal souvenirs,
    the pulsing of painters,
    preachers, the faultless criminal,
    floods and twisters,
    hearts and blisters.
    The gaudy careless carnival;
    the statistical spinning of fate.

    Been in this cloud three years now,
    guess I told you that.
    I hear melodies in green,
    what's that? Fifty-seven
    revolutions I have seen
    what do I know?
    Fireflies blinking in the brackens...
    And so I make mine organic
    and free range, and say
    "hey, my sweet Corinne,
    let's Return to Normal
    help me to release them in this cloud
    to blink and sparkle and flutter awhile,
    all around the world."
    backing music: bottleneck slide guitar in open E minor tuning on a vintage National 1145 archtop, a little acoustic accordion -- all recorded in North Judson, Indiana USA on February 20, 2013.
