Slip the Light

cover up the day, color in the night
yield the right-of-way somewhere softly out of sight,
drift above the fray, slip the light…
wipe away the dust from the corners of your eyes,
scrape away the rust, settle down to size,
put your trust in something live…
+++ and slip the light, trip away from here,
+++ skip that fight, every empty contest,
+++ ringing bright, let the whole town hear,
+++ they’ll hear anyway, they’ll hear…

skip the flattest stone over to the other side,
one ear always list’ning as the echoes rise,
let this heart be opened wide…
+++ and slip the light, trip away with me,
+++ skip that fight and every rivalry,
+++ burning bright, let the whole town see,
+++ they’ll see anyway…

+++ slip the light, trip away so slow,
+++ skip that fight, and all the empty show,
+++ shining bright, let the whole town know,
+++ they’ll see known, they’ll know…
