chagall backdrop

Used to be so lovely
now they say I’m only
lucky just to be alive

Daybreak on the water
lighting up the harbor
drowning’s just a state of mind

Episodes happen, everybody has some
get them while you’re staring
up the frown

Pleasure is a feeling
cracks along your ceiling
hoped once that I’d fall
on through and down

Pardon me a moment
need to find an exit
jotting down a parting
line or two

Episodes happen
everybody has them
even when you stand
atop the world

Used to be so lonely
now they say I’m lucky
Simply try to stay alive

Daybreak on the water
lighting up the harbor
drowning doesn’t take much time

It’s just a state
of mind
