subject: [ig-news] soon be to nothing


[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the indigo
girls mailing list at netspace.org.  it's not news and i *think*
it may have been posted here before, but this is a more complete
version so here it is again.  this is a new emily song, btw.]

here it is again...w/o the obnoxious interjections...sorry...(cicada: lg,
transparent winged insect that makes rythmic chirping noises...)  what's in "
" are my thoughts...


soon be to nothing


  "kill" the mountain road, saw the heavy load
  with the sagging heart, and they'll break apart
  voices, "enemies",
  stood as thick as theives
  with no sympathy, for the beggars art


  i have passed these "(pines/climbs)", 'bout a million times
  effortlessly
  now i grab the wheel, fear is what i feel
  "at the slow unraveling of me..."


  chorus:
  and you tell me its temporary, just a matter of time
  by god, don't you think i know "this" in my mind
  and it's right over left , "(healin' / heelin') the vend" (bend?)
  i'll soon be to nothing, but i don't know when

  well the way i flee, on my crooked feet
  "barn" happy horse, on a one track course
  i self-despise, crying out my eyes
  cause the happy trail, led me to remorse
  but the road is long, and the song is gone
  i grow empty in my cicada shell
  if i saw the choice, i might find my voice
  but i don't know when, and i just can't tell...


  chorus:
  and you tell me it's temporary, in just a matter of time
  by god, don't you think i know "what's" in my mind
  and it's right over left, healin' the vend
  i'll soon be to nothing, but i don't know when


  deep behind my face, is a safer place
  but the gears are hitched tight to the gate
  it's a daily grind, waiting to unwind
  till i hear the click that unlocks my fate...
