lyrics

V (Charlie)

A ‘V’ in the water, a ‘V’ in the air
The cusp it narrows, the past it flares
You and your mason jar, her and her stick
Have settled in lakeside, trigger that figure this
Military helicopters, circle above
Train shoots the trestle, what’s not to love
Rain it whispers, to the generous lake
Take all the pain that falls; be good for goodness sake

And I trust, it’ll fire up this time Charlie
Magneto ‘ll deliver a spark a thrust
And with that, we’ll run on like old times Charlie
Kickin' at the darkness, grinning at the rust

In the ditch a trickling brook, threads the culverts and weeds
Rain drops and runs together, on down to the sea
While over on the east coast, cars they coast up hill
Is it an illusion or a triumph of the will
You climb up to the platform, along side the rails
A place to escape the thunder, a place to set sail
Either way the will boy, gets a thorough shaking out
Will you make for a haven or leave with little in doubt

And I trust, it’ll fire up this time Charlie
Magneto ‘ll deliver a spark a thrust
And with that, we’ll run on like old times Charlie
Kickin' at the darkness, grinning at the rust

You trudge back to the trailhead, she runs on alone
Barks at the sight of the truck, new sun glows orange

And I trust, it’ll fire up this time Charlie
Magneto ‘ll deliver a spark a thrust
And with that, we’ll run on like old times Charlie
Kickin' at the darkness, grinning at the rust
