On the Verge of Terra Incognita

I want to find that hidden place and stay there with that hidden person or persons. I want to be able to sleep in peace with no fear of becoming prey to an animal larger than I. I want to have a life that is moist and full of darkness, but I can’t. I cannot because I’d get sick and die from some fungal matter. Oh well, no caves for me, although I can always pretend underneath the covers in my bed. That’s where a lot of time is spent pondering. It’s a nice place to me.

“Leaving Terra, leaving Terra...

If you’re a thought
you will want me to think you
and I did.
Invited a guest
up until you announced that you had moved on.
‘What do you plan to do with all your freedom?’
The new sheriff said
quite proud of his badge.
‘This must mean the land is now in good hands,’
Yes time will tell that
‘You just lift your lamp’

I will follow her on her path
Scarlet’s walk through the violets
Just tell your gods for me
All debts are off this year
They’re free to live
Yes
They’re to live

Leaving Terra…

There was a time
When I thought that her destiny should have been mine
Big brave nation
But instead her medicine
Now forgotten
‘What do you plan to do with all you’re stories?’
the new sheriff said
quite proud of his badge
‘We’ll weave them through every rocket’s red glare
and huddle masses
you just lift your lamp’

I will follow her on her path
Scarlet’s walk through the violets
Just tell your gods for me
All debts are off this year
They’re free to live
Yes
They’re to live

Leaving Terra…

If you’re a thought
You will want me to think
And I did
And I did”

These are lyrics from Tori’s title track from her new album. Each song takes place in a different state. A road trip across America. This one and another are exceptions. North Carolina has two songs. That is pretty special to me. This one just happens to take place in the mountains of North Carolina.
