Daphne Loves Derby

Daphne Loves Derby - A Year On An Airplane

rate me

We flew over the cascades We were forced to behave while we sat In rows like children I crossed some standard state lines And finally found myself so far away from home And even though New England intrigued us, thrilled us, Our bones were cold as sticks and stones We flew over the cascades Just to find ourselves in storms we've never known The winds blew like a beast with wings And yes, everything was blown so far away And I fell down I failed to cut its neck Even after hours of waiting There was no telling when the storm would find its way The lands we tried to memorize We're no longer wrapped in tepid shades of red And through the night the storm held me down And bit my neck and said it would be okay I stared into the fury And the beauty of its overwhelming strength The winds blew like a beast with wings And yes, everything was blown so far away And I fell down I failed to cut its neck I saw a dim light In the mouth of the beast So I followed it in It's too late to retreat It swallowed me whole And my flesh became meat Oh I can't look back now Because the beast is complete We flew over the cascades We were forced to behave
