Ouroboros

artist: Casey Neill and the Norway Rats

o the streets of this town lead to the next town all away around the world
through all the oceans in endless motion we’re diving for pearls
and the water keeps moving high up in the air
til it falls on our heads and runs through your hair
and the places we are now the places we’ve been
are one in the same now we end where we begin
and you my companion my long lost friend
again i am with you we begin where we end

every direction leads us back again to the doors of the houses we used to live in
the bed is still warm where we once lay the pillow still holds the shape of your face
and the places we are now the places we’ve been
are one in the same now we end where we begin
and you my companion my long lost friend
again i am with you we begin where we end

i cry sometimes, still i smile
goodbye this time, just for awhile

from the cooling of day to the chill of the evening
i lie awake & wonder what it is you are dreaming
we walk in this world our breathing an engine
i want to be like the fox, make tracks in the wrong direction
and practice resurrection
and the places we are now the places we’ve been
are one in the same now we end where we begin
and you my companion my long lost friend
again i am with you we begin where we end
where we end
