Ecclesiastes 7​:​4

from by Welcome Center

lyrics

i desired our dust to be mingled
in the static on a television screen
in a cheap motel in dallas
where you wait for me

and i imagine that we'd be connected
at the spine of something straight
like the unborn child in the west bank
who's more important than he'll think

but you thought your love wasn't good enough for a man like me

you told me that i was precocious
so i thought a lot about death
then the strangest things started happening
so you packed your bags and you left

but somehow i still prayed my hardest
to a fragmented thought in the sky
and the glue that held my perceptions
turned to chalk for your body's outline

but you thought your love wasn't good enough for a man like me

come california through seattle, new jersey, new orleans and flint
i will bring you home to me, for me
with one .45 by my waist side, some matches, a stitch from my past and blood
you belong to me, for me

but you thought your love wasn't good enough for a man like me
