lyrics

~ACORNS~


Where you go with that y-ellow ticket?
Push it aside to get inside, but n-ot y-et.
Let it go in fact, you won’t leave intact enough to hold it in your hand.

Ceiling with no walls, woman with no balls
to go inside a good place to hide when the acorn falls.
Tightly holding that brand new gold ticket
just place it where you won’t get burned.

Don’t know where you went, in the circus tent,
now color blind, without your mind, you even left no scent.
Light that leaves no mark leaves you in the dark,
but can’t you see much better now, without that dark secret?

Come into the second door this side, if you’re ready not to try and hide.
I promise not to help you decide (it’s only your insides).
You find yourself coming into shape, asking “How long is it going to take?
and when can I take off this old tape? It’s starting to stink of pride.”
Well that’s all just a part of the ride.
Just stay inside…

Transformation coming along (ears to the wall)
Tall branches bent, hear elephants (it’s ripe to fall)
Forewarned-a storm of acorns (it’s ripe to fall)

I did not expect to go with you, as this path does not have room for two.
now I won’t have to buy new shoes; you’ve taught me how to glide.
I sliced open my feet last I tried.
And when I cried, my tears turned into new acorns.
(Just watch them fall)

Send you off with that polished gold ticket,
with brand new feet, someone to meet, and the stage reset.
Sev’ral lifetimes spent polishing intent,
until it shines, reflecting thine; we’ll never forget.
Way to grow, with that y-ellow sunlit illuminated patch of sky.
And now, good bye - - - >

about

The Anomylos Ensemble New York

Anomylos tells stories within stories, shape-shifting between dialects of prog, punk, jazz, classical, and all kinds of folk music, in a basic language of artsong. Self-described as "anti-chamber music", the journey is wrought with colorful reflection, angst, lyricism, contrapuntal word-painting, and arc. Listen on (m)any levels- When the words and sounds fade, the story continues. ... more
