All trees are oaks
All birds are blue
In the mountains of a magnet
Are the mountains of you

I'm proud of my genius just like a painter
And dumb like a poet I think
I can just say it from the throats of our wrists
With full sets of teeth

Vanilla almond teeth
From vanilla almond tea spent afternoons measuring time in spoons
A southern run for a late longing to drink
What's 80 miles in canada or 18 years in the mountains

Where all trees are oaks and all birds are blue, ach' do
I thought everyone was you
Where forget-me-nots and marigolds and other things
That don't get old

Don't get old between one June and September
You're all I remember
But I'm a lantern, my head a moon
I married a room where I'll at least keep my hands in order

And what about the air, lying awake.

    General CommentAfter first reading "Daddy" a week or so ago and immediately noticing phrases I'd heard in Promise Ring lyrics I had a look round the net for anything TPR may have said about the use of Plath-derived lyrics, but the closest I came to finding any answers was an interview in which Davey said something about liking to "borrow" lines from various sources. So, my search for meanings eventually led me here, and it looks like everyone's as puzzled as me... :P
