peace fell behind me
voices fled the room
peace fell behind me
as you learn to trust your ears’ good news

Little boy, quivering man
try to push it down, best you can
here I live, under your skin
tacking you, tacking you

burning in my lungs and my legs
dream us alive
things I cannot tell her to her face
we both, survive
(sure you could)

all you loveless autumn men
leaves in the wake of a train
left you coping with the knowledge
that there’s been a little change of plans

peace of mind
give me a little peace of your mind
we can’t sing
but you know we can dance, right?

notoriously seedy
the streets get pretty creepy
just as the nights grow cold
put your arm around her
say something to confound her
before she hears the same thing you do
put your arm around her
cross over to the other side
ingloriously sleazy
she feels a little queasy
she hears it now too

peace fell behind me
the quiet we all know too soon
crushing childhood fantasies
hanging like a dolly from her noose


from A Good Ghost, track released January 16, 2011
