Letter From Cambridge

lyrics

I don't remember if the sky that day was blue or gray or even the season
I would have seen it as gray anyway- I disconnect from the time and the reason
old man squawking on his erhu
a couple kids banging on pots and pans
have I ended up in a foreign land?
I've been walking a really long time.

split in the road, shops underground
bookstores, tuning out the sound
and getting struck with the question
what matters?

in my paper cocoon I travel far
pen in hand I pillage your village
wood smoke and bars on the windows
I slip inside and I piss on the privilege

what do they know of survival?
these iron gates that keep me at bay
well they can all just fade to gray
what does it matter
what matters?

split in the road, shops underground
bookstores, tuning out the sound
and getting struck with the question

split in the road, shops underground
ink spills on musty ground
and getting struck with the question
what matters?
