The sprout and the bean – Joanna Newsom

I slept all day
I woke with distaste
And I railed
And I raved

That the difference between
The sprout and the bean
It is a golden ring
It is a twisted string

And you can ask the counselor
And you can ask the king
And I’ll say the same thing
And it’s a funny thing

Should we go outside?
Should we go outside?
Should we break some bread?
Are you interested?

And as I said
I slept as though dead
Dreaming seamless dreams
Of lead

When you go away
I am big-boned and fey
In the dust of the day
In the dirt of the day

And danger, danger drawing near them was a white coat
And danger, danger drawing near them was a broad boat
And the water, water running clear beneath a white throat
And the hollow chatter of the talking of the tadpoles

Who know the outside?
Should we go outside?
Should we break some bread?
Are you interested?
