Blind Pilot - Paint Or Pollen Lyrics




Don't move an inch
listen for a singing
hitting in your bones like they were forks
If you hear what I hear
Don't just sit there.
We are only strumming water
on this most unlikely chord.

You got blown shore to shore,
Not quite sailing
Riding on the trade-winds of age.
Things blow in
Don't just cast them
You say it now, what you want to stay

I was once on a long boat
star mapping the night roots
lightening the load
just in case
Things float in to be taken.
if you don't know by now, what will stay?

So don't move an inch.
Don't move a single second,
until the shade behind your thoughts is not confused.
'Cause I felt your itch.
I know the scent as well as any,
clotting your garden
of paint or pollen,
brick in your mortar,
petals to soak in,
on the cracks,
thicker or finer,
milk in your water,
black in your primer,
wood in your brush,
now I am your cloth,
whatever you want-
the best is upon us.
Its a finicky muse
with only potential
to choose.

    Don't move an inch
    Listen for a singing
    Hitting in your bones like they were forks
    If you hear what I hear
    Don't just sit there
    We are only strumming water
    On this most unlikely chord

    You got blown shore to shore
    Not quite sailing
    Riding on the trade-winds of age
    Things blow in
    Don't just cast them
    You say it now, what you want to stay

    I was once on a long boat
    Star-mapping the night routes
    Lightening the load
    Just in case
    Things float in to be taken
    If you don't know by now, what will stay?

    So don't move an inch
    Don't move a single second
    Until the shade behind your thoughts is not confused
    'Cause I've felt your itch
    I know the scent as well as any
    Clotting your garden
    Of paint or pollen
    Brick in your mortar
    Pedals to soak in
    On the cracks
    Thicker or finer
    Milk in your water
    Black in your primer
    Wood in your brush
    Now I am your cloth
    Whatever you want
    The best is upon us
    It's a finicky muse
    With only potential
    To choose
