Those Drums

Walked out to the edge of town and
looked out on the hills surrounding me
I do believe
that everything is tied up like a
North Korean spy inside a
room without a key
It’s all stuck in slow suspension,
clumsy underwater fencing,
yesterday’s newspaper weapons,
careless first and sloppy secondly

It was the drums that convinced me to come home
It was the droning in my bones
Little cells never really held me well
Never quite could carry me

Over at the baseball field where
all the hearts I tried to steal run free
Out beyond the first base line
My sneakers off and grass stains on the knee
Fortify the earth below me
Planting every step so slowly
Can I be the one and only…

It was the drums that convinced me to come home
It was the droning in my bones
Little cells never really held me well
Never quite could carry me
It was the drums that brought me home

I'm convinced there’s magnets in my shoes
Keep pulling me right back to you
Every time I try to pry them loose
It’s no use

It was the drums that convinced me to come home
It was the droning in my bones

The Shouldas are playing hide and seek in the park at dusk.

The Shouldas are contemplating life after death while washing silverware.

The Shouldas are tracing the lights of highways outside the airplane window while everyone else is sleeping.

The Shouldas are waiting until the time is right.
