Outpost Lyrics (by Minoans)
Oh, you kept me awake when I wanted to sleep and dream of myself caught between two fields, on a stile, with no one else, shielding my eyes from evening sun. Look to the woods.
Oh, open your eyes at the end of a prayer; then open your mouths. I don’t feel a thing when I hear the words that come out. You might find truth in books and songs? You might find warmth in warm arms?
“The forest was dark!” And you tried to hide it away from my eyes.
“The rivers were cold!” And these streams just pass you by; then they’re gone.
Before these leaves turn brown, not looking back nor down, I’ll find a girl to lead me down to the sea, describe some places she’s been, lie back and picture the scene.
Then I’ll just take her hand, stay there as long as I can, but she’ll look incredibly sad for me. Send signals straight to the trees, my brothers wait for me at the outpost.
