lyrics

Downstream
There's broken down machines
Obscured from your eyes
Overrun by scenery

and the brick
choked by kudzu
obscured from your eyes
an artifact to you

overgrown
the ground that once was there
changing fortune
was more than it could bear

overgrown
the ground that once was there
changing fortune
was more than it could bear

Planted thoughts
are electric
synapses
snapping in the air

Planted thoughts
are electric
synapses
snapping in the air

Was there something that I missed
A conduit
Through tortuous turns
I insist

A labyrinth, a conduit
A billow in the sky
I insist
I saw smoke plume

Planted thoughts
are electric
synapses
snapping in the air

Planted thoughts
are electric
synapses
snapping in the air

Down the smokestacks
I shimmy
Through the ferns and foxglove
In the chimney

Down the smokestacks
I slink
Through the ferns and foxglove
Is something precious hidden there?

Planted thoughts
are electric
synapses
snapping in the air

Planted thoughts
are electric
synapses
snapping in the air

Down the smokestacks
To find nonpareil jewels
To find you
To find what's left of you

Down the smokestacks
To find nonpareil jewels
To find you
To find what's left of you
