lyrics

Oh my son
I saw you picking flowers in a field of riddles and bones
stepping over boulders just to look beneath the tiny stones
what did you find? was the truth too unkind? don't you wish you were blind when you see the kind of words you never wanted to read
thrown across a canvas just to make your heart bleed

oh my friend
you were walking through the desert just as if you were the prodigal son
your feet hit the end now they're kicking like you're tying to run
what is the point? now you're souls out of joint and what disappointing end to a beautiful and promising start
the words still pulling at the strings of your heart

you took me to the mountain tops
and you left me in the cold
this field's a vacant lot
riddles bought and riddles sold
what sky could i hope to reach from here?
would i ever be so bold?
