Newsom, Joanna - Yarn And Glue Lyrics




Do you know what this is, son?
This is the Panopticon
And all around us blink the brash
And shifty eyes of common cash

So do we die or do we travel
Down the path by which one dabbles
In the arts of antediluvian crafts
With yarn and glue?

So gather twilight to your breast
And couch the rabble-rouser's nest
And we will take a day of rest
And we will all be heaven-blessed

And we will gather round to dine
And pass the time with wicked rhymes
And toast in dandelion wines
To hear their mellifluous chimes

We toast the fallow furrows that we sow,
And we toast the monies that we owe, owe, owe
And we toast the creditors we daily face
Who topple down with gruesome grace

And we toast the aristocrats with blood of blue
'Cause we know that our collars are that color, too
And we toast the artisans of antediluvian crafts
With yarn and glue

We do, we do

    @Gary190tube There's also a growing trend these days of over-rated "pop" and rap artists that only sing about sex, drugs and "partying". I'm sorry but it aint my fault if you're tone-deaf. GO JOANNA!

  11. Joseph Howell

    @bendabledoll Cheer up bud! everything gets better eventually.

  12. MrMortenbra

    @Gary190tube what is an example of this?

  13. Gary190tube

    And we will gather round to dine
    And pass the time with wicked rhymes
    And toast in dandelion wines
    To hear their mellifluous chimes
    We toast the fallow furrows that we sow,
    We toast the monies that we owe, oh, oh
    We toast the creditors we daily face

    Who topple down with gruesome grace
    And we toast the aristocrats with blood of blue
    Because we know our collars are that colour too
    And we toast the artisans of antediluvian crafts
    With yarn and glue
    We do, we do!

    Oh wow, I just now discovered her first two albums. It's so interesting to hear how her music has developed over time.
    Very pretty. :3
