THE SLOW DOWN DEEP

performed by Scott Warner w/full band

We starve the body

To feed the grave

Empty the ocean

To spite the wave

Bomb the city

The people to save

By all means

Bring your hurry

Your symphony of worry


        Let us go, my sweet

        To The Slow Down Deep

        In the way to the place of the dream

        Where the shepherd and sheep

        Repair as they sleep

        And nothinʼ ainʼt nothinʼ like it seems


We train a smile

To hide the teeth

We shame the child

A lesson to teach

We blame the pear

For not being a peach

By all means bring your answers

Your contracts your cancers


        The step-down is steep

        To The Slow Down Deep

        In the way to the place of the dream

        Where the mighty and meek,

        Fred nʼGinger the street

        And nothinʼ ainʼt nothinʼ like it seems

        Yeah, nothinʼ ainʼt nothinʼ like it seems

We doom the heart

To never and should

Pictures of love

Ideas of good

Forget that what is

Is always a could

By all means

Bring your errors

Your secrets, your terrors


        The let-go ainʼt cheap

        To The Slow Down Deep

        In the way to the place of the dream

        Where the shadow and light

        Are always just right

        And nothinʼ ainʼt nothinʼ like it seems


By no means

Am I ready

This seesaw hates steady –

I am trying my life away

My surrender is true

And I will give you

Every reason in the book

Just to throw the book away


        Life is so sweet

        In The Slow Down Deep

        In the way to the place of the dream

        And the earth will turn

        And the humans learn

        That nothinʼ ainʼt nothinʼ like it seems

        Yeah, nothinʼ ainʼt nothinʼ like it seems
