The Things He Saw

from by Ordinary Elephant

/

lyrics

Band of gold, spinning around
A finger on a hand that felt the sound
That rang through the dirt of a battleground
Across the sea in a foreign town

Worried hands trace his jaw
And that old El Camino with its every flaw
But a blank page is all he can draw
You'd swear he's never seen the things he saw

Pacing a yard starting to wilt
Brown and green, like a patchwork quilt
Picking up leaves the trees have spilt
Outside a house he doesn't know he built

Band of gold, spinning around
A finger on a hand that's bearing down
On a wooden cane dug into the ground
You'd swear he's never seen a thing in this town
