Blind Pilot - Packed Powder Lyrics




I started working at the second hand,
I thought it would make me more colorful.
I saw the world as a stitch and patch.
I saw the sky as torn grey wool.

I started working as a dime store clerk,
I thought it would make me the kind to put you first.
My only dreams were in fluorescent light,
My only goal was to forget what I was worth.

I want to see how it takes me.
I want to see how the powder burns.
Don't want to keep what I can't have more of.
Don't want to wait and miss my turn.

I started working as a tour guide,
I thought it would make me believe my own words.
Every patient thought just passed me by,
Every truth I said sounded just absurd.

I started working at a small town church,
I thought it would make me a better man.
They said the sins I had would fly away,
As if the birds were in the palms of my own hands.

I want to see how it takes me,
I want to see how the powder burns.
Don't want to keep what I can't have more of,
Don't want to wait and miss my turn.

    Hadn't heard a note of Blind Pilot's music before I took my teenage daughter and my niece to see them at the Minnesota Zoo amphitheater for her birthday over the summer. Haven't been able to get this song out of my head ever since. Didn't think it was going to be my thing, but in fact it turned out to be one of my favorite concerts ever.
