COME ON IN, BEND YOUR SKIN

COME ON IN, BEND YOUR SKIN

My New Found Friend


while wanderin’ through this lazy field
of ryegrass and thorn
i came up on a paper bag
his body old and torn
i leaned down to ask his name
and could he be my friend
we had a lot to talk about and
i asked where he’d been
and he said

hello my only friend
hello my only friend
my new found friend

well he told me of his future
and we talked about his past
he told me of all his attempts of love
and how they’d never last
we both had a lot in common
we both moved with the wind
we both had a shell that could fade with time
and we both knew the wage of sin
and he said

hello my only friend
hello my only friend
my new found friend

we were sitting and talking peacefully
when these men walked up to me
and one was carrying a state white coat
the other a lock and key
they were leading me to their wagon
when this wind came up out side
i turned and saw my paper friend
and I sadly said goodbye
and he said

goodbye my only friend
goodbye my only friend
my new found friend
goodbye my only friend
my new found friend

till we meet again
