After Fall


Words & Music: Bobby Shiflett

I’ve been thinking it over
Things start getting funny in the fall
By winter things are screaming
And prophets no longer dreaming
Maybe we’re just sleepy, after all

Maybe we should follow the voices
That tell us to get in and close our doors
And how the trails are haunted
And peace so badly wilted
That we can’t see through the trees anymore

Has the woods gotten bigger and bigger?
The path goes on and on and never ends
The silence has gotten greater
And fear is our creator
That’s when the paranoia sets in

I’ve been thinking it over
We all got lost in the fall
And the woods have gotten bigger and meaner and darker
And we’re scared, little children, after all.
