ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE

I see fields of blue

and skies of green,

the sun is red,

know what I mean?

 

Another day in paradise

another day of heat in ice.

The birds are swimming

over flying fish.

 

The house is empty.

 The rooms are full.

The castle rocks,

yet the twig holds strong.

 

Another day in the garden of Eden.

Breathing in water,

breathing out dust.

The cupboard spills over with people,

all hiding from sunshine and pain.

 

Upside down and inside out.

The day is night, the night is night.

As the dogs begin to fly,

a wooden doll lies down to cry.

 

Another day in paradise.

Another day in the heat of the ice.
