Finally found a place to rest my head

( Thank you for listening to
The Atlas, This is The Oyster)

There are scenes
I sleep between
oh late at night my oyster heart
turns affliction in to art
and when I dream I use it
making little bits of music
watch them grow

just like a pearl
the earth was white
until the lord picked up that crumb
between his finger and his thumb
paint it blue and green
all blue and green except the ends
where it just snows

on and on and on and on and on

hey,what more do you expect?
what more do you believe?
hey,what love we can reject?
what death is there to grieve?

there are scenes
I sleep between
oh joy is just a giant shout
you pull it in and push it out
but if you hold it in you
yeah, the wind will die within you
let it blow

yeah, it's the same
our bodies change
I am the one that lets you know
I am the one that wraps my loving arms around you
when they put you in the ground
and let you go

on and on and on and on and on

what more do you expect?
what more do you believe?

hey,what more do you expect?
what more do you believe?
hey,what love we can reject?
what death is there to grieve?

(You sleep alone tonight)

hey,what more do you expect?
what more do you believe?
hey,what love we can reject?
what death is there to grieve?

Finally found a place to rest my
Finally found a place to rest my head

    My Interpretation:These are the correct lyrics..

    there are scenes
    I sleep between
    late at night my oyster heart
    turns affliction in to art
    and in my dreams I use it
    making little bits of music
    watch them grow

    just like a pearl
    the earth was white
    until the lord picked up that crumb
    between his finger and his thumb
    and paint it blue and green
    all blue and green except the ends
    where it just snows

    on and on and on and on and on

    hey,
    what more do you expect?
    what more do you believe?
    hey,
    what love we can reject?
    what death is there to grieve?

    there are scenes
    I sleep between
    joy is just a giant shout
    you pull it in and push it out
    but if you hold it in you
    yeah, the wind will die within you
    let it blow

    yeah, it's the same
    our bodies change
    I am the one that lets you know
    I am the one that wraps my loving arms around you
    when they put you in the ground
    and let you go
