Thoughts are made out of scarlet mud.
They slip. They crack. Sometimes they fade into puce dust.
I hid this one – right here- in your blood.

Thoughts made out of scarlet mud,
burnt dirt and iced tea,
I hid that one – right there. In your blood
I see you and me,

burnt dirt and iced tea,
Texas sun and Chicago snow.
I see you and me,
you in them, wherever we go.

Texas sun and Chicago snow,
please build me a skylight, so I won’t be so callous.
You and them, wherever we go
thoughts are made out of scarlet mud.
