from Tradition | Innovation by Yellow Dog Records



from YDR 1678 Swimming in Turpentine


The barn is burning
In the back yard
It’s Getting hard to see
I went back home
Just To find you gone
and the Ashes covered me
are you free – are you free – are you free
In your mind
-Don’t you worry about me buddy
I’m just swimming in turpentine

You built a tower then you Pushed it over
Took so long to see
All your friends they pulled you in
You’re Such a casualty
Go away From my mind
So don’t worry about me buddy
I’m just swimming in turpentine

Help me back up before I lose my way
Turn me over don’t leave me where I lay
Time is just a lie and you will soon be mine
But for now I’ll be swimming down here all alone
In this turpentine

You Paint your story with your shadows
See it your own way
falling down just to find the ground
find me where I lay
Spinning round to read the signs
Don’t you worry about me any more
I’m just swimming in turpentine
