Peaceful songs
We'll get along
If we lead 'em together in the armory
On my knees
My head on your queasy stomach
Can not keep my chin up

I woke to sweats in the night
Strange sensation to feel alive
I find it so hard to tell you
I'm afraid to forget the smell of you

Wizard with a wand
Competing with the lightning
Coward and also a king
And a man of oil

Floating logs on the dark stream
Move me unlike apologies I'm texting
Broken limbs filled with smooth snakeskin
On a Ferris wheel far from cash, love

You've got to have the tough guts
So you're hung like a human
And watch the young nuts grow
I find it so hard to hear you
Say you think that I never hear you

Wizard with a wand
Competing with the lightning
Coward and also a king
And a man of oil

I woke to sweats in the night
Strange sensation to be alive
I find it so hard to tell you
I'm afraid to forget the smell of you

Wizard with a wand
Competing with the lightning
Coward and also a king
And a man of oil

    General CommentThink he's talking about being the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz....

    "I woke to sweats in the night
    Strange sensation to feel alive"
    -He doesn't feel alive...

    "Wizard with a wand
    Competing with the lightning
    Coward and also a king
    And a man of oil"
    -The Wizard, the Cowardly Lion King, and the Tin Man

    "Broken limbs filled with smooth snakeskin"
    -Like being filled with straw

    "You've got to have the tough guts
    So you're hung like a human
    And watch the young nuts grow"
    -He's hung and watching the nuts grow like on a farm
