Equanimity 04:04
EQUANIMITY G it's a pleasant confusion with no resolution in sight all your temperature readings have been slightly misleading despite all this breathing and this velvety night C though you've tried to make a bed for me i've been thrown off my legs by your bounding sea G but you bring me home in your equanimity G Gentle now, patience now, gentle now, patience now Am Bm C D don't ask how ... or why ... or who ... are you G patience now, gentle now, patience now, oh and how Am Bm C D C/E D/F# could we find ... some other.. way .. to ... do ... you I can taste your reaction, but I'm getting no traction this time i could blame the ship sinking on my damn overthinking or the same thing that's kinking up my body and mind there's a sweeping feeling deep in me sees me lose my towering solidity but you bring me home in your ... equanimity Gentle now, patience now, gentle now, patience now don't ask how .. or why ... or who ... are you patience now, gentle now, patience now, oh and how could we find some other way to ... do ... you

PAGE FIFTEEN. SING TO ME THAT THINGS ARE WHAT THEY SEEM. TURNPIKES WAKE YOU FROM YOUR DREAMS GARDENS LIE UNDER YOUR ROADWAYS THOUGH YOU'LL NEVER SHED A TEAR FOR THIS OPPOSITE OF A FRONTIER SET ASIDE THAT WHICH APPEARS IN YOUR DUST-COVERED TROPHIES OF GLORY DAYS (THE SAME HAND HOLDS YOU AS THE HAND THAT LETS YOU GO)

I remember Travis We were brothers savage Eloquent and avid Jeu de mots sublime In our desert palace Wardrobes halfway ravaged Geniuses of damage Lighting touched by crime I remember Travis Where you walk You’ll find forests Where you sit You’ll find shade Where you’ve been I can’t get there So hold on to what we’ve made Schoolhouses crumble Pumpkins rot Oceans roar History rumbles What you’ve got You’ve gotta get some more You’ve gotta get some more I remember Travis We were brothers savage Eloquent and avid Jeu de mots sublime In our desert palace Wardrobes halfway ravaged Geniuses of damage Lighting touched by grime I remember Travis Love is right By your side In your body In the ground And you’re always Growing older We have systems We have sound Postmarked Australia L.A.’s waiting L.A.’s gone Love will never fail ya Just remember What we’ve done What we’ve done I remember Travis We were brothers savage Eloquent and avid Jeu de mots sublime In our desert palace Wardrobes halfway ravaged Geniuses of damage Lighting touched by time
