from Confetti in a Coalmine by Matt DeMello

lyrics

I think I’ve got a lot of thinking, I think I’ve got a lot of thinking to do.
I think I’ve got a lot of thinking about thinking about talking about thinking about talking to you.
And yes, I promise to be honest, yes, I promise to be honest and true.
Yes, I promise to be conscious, and honest, of all voices and all choices and all different points of view.
Then I fall into a landslide of my own self worth,
When it boils down to a choice of words,
Between myself and the herd?
Must I subscribe to the slow backslide of humanity,
or is it a matter of sanity, or the gravity,
that snakes between these nouns and verbs?

I was thinking of another word for love,
That’s not the word I was sure I was thinking of,
But I thank you for your contribution to the size of my vocabulary.
I was thinking of another word for love,
That’s not the word I was sure I was thinking of,
So I thank you for your contribution to the greatest conversation ever everyday.

I swear I didn’t mean to tell you, I swear I didn’t mean to tell you any single, consequential untruths,
and I furthermore prosthelytize I will apologize roughly a million times if that should sound considerably uncouth.
And yes I promise to be forthwith, yes I promise to be forthwith with you
Yes I promise to be forthwith, about the forces, and the causes, and about the course switch between the captain and the crew
But then just like the water molecules in the atmosphere
When would-ja guess who should perservere
Through the frigid air despite a climate of such rank despair, asking me to decide...
When I subside the urge of my dark side into fantasy,
And away from catastrophies that I cannot see,
but go hand-in-hand with sins of pride —

I'm not sure from whence my words should come,
But their total's greater than the sum,
Of all things that I’ve tried to say,
Whether coerced or to persuade
A new found conscience clear
Of all charges made in baseless fears
With diction cursed with freedom of choice
We victims of that basement voice,
That knows these are not children’s toys

I was thinking of another word for love,
That’s not the word I was sure I was dreaming of,
But I thank you for your contribution to the size of my vocabulary.
I was thinking of another word for love,
That’s not the word I was sure I was dreaming of,
But come to think of it, it occurs to me that the only acceptable answer is your name

It’s your name
It’s your name
