In the Shadow of the Clouds
Jandek

We're in the shadow of the clouds
All there is is brown and blue
And when I think about it all
I can't forget the downfall
And all the pieces of the place
The rain upon my hungry face
I got to go, I got to go
I don't really want to know
It's just my mind won't let me free
I'm not blind, I can see
The shock of knowing you are gone
A long term life that I must give
To the downfall of our dreams
As my eyes looked through it all
I saw the fury and the fire
And I heard the thunder sound
I felt the raining in my heart
As time went by and you weren't there
Now all I see is brown and blue
In the shadow of the clouds
The death and panic have passed by
I couldn't help but pass them to you
Something senseless on that day
I can't help but look away
I stared it in the face and I knew
No matter how much time went by
We walk and talk somewhere unknown
In the shadow of the clouds
