Hole in the Sky

from Bent by the Weather by Life in a Blender



Seabirds flying backwards
Clouds looking strange
A small grey whale has come to warn us of a wave.

There’s no escaping
What’s done will come
We’ll sail into tomorrow to another sun

Stones sucked from the ocean
Moon’s swallowed whole
The guts they never lie, we must trust what they have told

Chaos bursts from darknesss
Children gasp and stare
A misbegotten mushroom crowned with sickly yellow hair

Oh we just want to survive, floating on top of the flood
We’ll direct all our fears to hope and purpose
to keep us from the troubles to come.
Oh we just want to survive, clinging to this pile of refuse
Somehow without the men in charge things will here be more peaceful
Or maybe that’s just a ruse

Art is the safest channel for our madness
When there’s problems ahead….bring out the puppeteer
Bring out the songs when the storm is all around us
Art is….a channel for our fear

Oh what the fuck that art is I really can’t explain
Makes the sun more than hot and the rain more than rain
And even the Patch out in the Sargasso Sea
Means that anything can be real though it really can not be

That’s what Art is.
That’s what art is
That’s what Art is.
That’s what art is

Art gives us all hope when we know we’ll soon be dying
Art helps us make sense of the things we can’t explain

Like the seabird flying backwards
The clouds looking strange
The small grey whale who’s come to warn us of a wave
