lyrics

DRIFTAWAY (e. fischer)

no, i’m not your monkey
i’m not given to leaps of faith
the mapping of of names to the navel of the earth
artful copies, the mundane deified
i’m resigning my place in that cage
i never did learn to swallow my rage

i hereby register my intention
to remain the outcast with the bad reputation
i’ll leave the same way i came, from behind
aimlessly drifting from day into night
it is, as they say, a role i was born to play
or maybe i just became that way

drift away, drift away
drift from day into night
there seems no end in sight
hand in hand my funny friends and i

the connoisseurs of decorative spaces
the constant defenders of the nearly dead
sing to me of love, a sign of the times, that i’m a wreck
but i’ve always admired those at the bottom of the deck
with dulcet tones and pictures of homes
they show me the meaning of dread

so come all you exiles with broken legs
you who live on and on in my weary head
a thousand lone conspirators of the sublime
sharpen your knives my partners in crime
of hatred and virtue laugh straight to my face
eloquently skinning me alive
