Christmas and the New Year bring you here
Sun and Sky get Cloud and cataract
The black and ice, the balding ground
Is the Midwest in its mid-life crisis?

The season's dare
Ugly words like "Janu-", "February"
Light comes late and Dark's on time (or early)

Maybe we could light a fire here
The sky's not sick, it's sleeping
Maybe call upon a theory here
From grade school on our last rule
"Page 10" squiggled in red pen
Every atom has a tendency to come together when it's cold

The wind this Christmas will make me shake
Maybe it's not something if you're moving,
You're not freezing, would you dance?
The waters frozen over, here we should skate
Slash your speed on glassy ice
Or outline all your angels in the snow
Or your shadow

Maybe we could light a fire here
The sky's not sick, it's sleeping
Maybe call upon a theory here
From grade school on our last rule
"Page 10" squiggled in red pen
Every atom has a tendency to come together when it's cold

And I know, it's cold

Maybe we could light a fire here
The sky's not sick, it's sleeping
Maybe call upon a theory here
From grade school on our last rule
"Page 10" squiggled in red pen
Every atom has a tendency to come together when it's cold
