Cataldo

Cataldo - Black Lamb

rate me

If this age is going to change me

Then let it change me by degree

If I become something disgusting

I’ll just retrace my steps and leave

But what a cowardly thing: to know the notes but not sing

So let the tall grass creep up into my wheel-wells

And let the grey paint-speckled

Husk betray the way I lived while

I was being born in travel.

Every breath was summer air.

Not a black lamb reading Vanity Fair

And when you look into the mirror and see a shivering actress

And you half forget the difference

Between the blond girl and the black dress

Well don’t dwell too much on that

You know the steps so just dance

And let the tall grass creep up into my wheel-wells

And let the gray paint-speckled

Husk betray the way I lived while

I was being born in travel

Every breath was summer air

Not a black lamb reading Vanity Fair

Not the town drunk screaming that my shot wasn’t fair

Not a dry eye blinking and trying hard not to stare

Not a black lamb reading Vanity Fair
