(On the Occasion of) Guy Fawkes Day

about

This is a song about what you do in the small moments before things end.

lyrics

Frame the picture on the corner
Wait for the crosswalk, squint your eyes
Give your purchase to the coat check
Like it's a hard-won, fragrant prize

Haunt the stacks, flip through at random
Find something decent, something true
Maybe a tune that you've forgotten
A stately moment touching you

Don't fill in the space
Put a smile on my face
It's Guy Fawkes Day
It's Guy Fawkes Day
Or could be anyway

Check your phone, unlock the front door
Close the windows, fold the clothes
Try to clean the drunken traces
So that only morning shows

Spend the day and night in noisy bliss
Stand like a statue in the glare
Pull up late into the driveway
Hope you see what isn't there

Don't fill in the space
Put a smile on my face
It's Guy Fawkes Day
It's Guy Fawkes Day
Or could be anyway
