about

Written, performed and recorded by The Color Waves, 2014.

lyrics

Mountain, prairie… prairie, ocean
How she loved to dance and sail
Mountain, prairie, prairie, ocean
How she curtseyed, how she fell
How she snuck out
How she struck out

Ten, nine, eight… ten, nine, eight, seven
They took a knife to every edge
Carving hollows shaped like thoughts
Sculpting wordless question marks
She stopped counting
Stopped reciting

A dynasty of birds who grumbled
Bitterly into their wings
Killed the only one among them
Who ever dared to sing
One whose colors were distinct
One whose colors were so delicately inked
A fire-feathered prize
A bird of paradise
