    "Whirling Dervish" Lyrics

    Thin White Rope

    I realize it's two or three comparisons away
    But somewhere in the background of the calmest of your days
    A scrap of paper floats a thousand feet up in the air
    Abandoned by some dust devil that died and left it there

    The wind digs deep and peels up the skin of the land
    The howling current erases the prints from my hand
    I know you are a creature of soil and air
    If one becomes too heavy the other simply escapes from there

    When you unleash the sand and wind
    I am suspended by your eyes

    Squirming like a beetle pinned
    Between the devil and the deep blue sky

    The wind licks off the tar paper with sandy cat tongues
    Numberless horned bullets lodge in a lover's lungs
    At last I see the ghosts which have been with me all along
    Spinning on an axis pointed straight up at the sun

    When the substance of our life together becomes too much
    And you threaten to remove the whirlwind of your touch
    I am only a piece of trash up a mile high
    Grabbing at the falling sand which held me in the sky
