Written by Isaac Gill in the fall of 2009, in Virginia

lyrics

Puffy clouds made of steel
When will this heart ever learn to feel
I don't recall ever being just a boy
Where the world was simple and all was my toy
Where magnolia trees picketed the sides
Of windy narrow roads that border the coast
Of my dreams
 
Holy Bibles soaked in gin
Get you drunk so the words don't get in
When the lights go off in the Cities on the Hill
It's not because Somebody never paid the bill
You see, it's marshmallow people who really are quite evil
Who just let the whole world die while they sleep 'neath the steeple
And never try
 
Tall, warm campfire by the side of a lake
I feel inspired but still think I'm a fake
Out past the fog where this boat runs a'ground
I hope to arrive in some peaceable town

Where lazy believers awoke from their pride
And narrowminded people thought about their lives
Where lazy believers awoke from their pride
And narrowminded people thought about their lives
Before they die
 
I don't recall ever being just a boy
When the world was simple and all was my toy
Where magnolia trees picketed the sides
Of windy narrow roads that border the coast
Of my dreams
