about

song Autumn by CGIV. all rights Tenement Records

lyrics

hoods up for the long haul
inordinate animal
it's time to put the child to bed
tame yourself in time for death

last stretch before surrender
undeserving also-ran
time to put your prices up
change yourself in time for luck

activate the five year plan
on the wagon, in the can
a perfect day to overcome
obstacles like love and fun

the grip of fear the knee jerk hate
vibrating nerves in vacant lots
the abstract comfort of aroma
brickdust and bergamot

there is no stone as deep as sleep
at least not for the living
no more fantasies to keep
me from going where i'm going

autumn in paradise
prepare the sacrifice

your every right to lose control
your right to be unreasonable
your right to moulder and to rust
your right to misjudge and mistrust

an autumn hue in everything you see and hear and say and do
the abstract comfort of perfume
of yesterday and soon to come

autumn in paradise
prepare the sacrifice
germanic discipline
a shadow of your future self

there is no stone as deep as sleep
at least not for the living
no more fantasies to keep
me from going where i'm going
after the rain we'll start again
we'll start mapping out an ending
a perfect day to pave the way
a perfect day to give up thinking
