Little Thing

from by Pale Bird

lyrics

Pale Bird picking charcoal bones with a silver bill
These people are turning away
I think they took the wrong red pill
I hear words ringing out
A voice of reason still
We might listen if it wasn’t
From the top of Calvary Hill

When any little thing goes wrong
I see you reach out for the good book

Hey remember when were 14
And the only thing you read
Was the Warhammer 40,000 ruleset
And this winter, when your path wasn’t so clear
You spoke aloud the Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear

A sufficient level of detail to occupy my thoughts
To give them a pleasant space to pace backwards and forwards
Fear, the mind-killer, is buried and is gone
There’s a light blinking which says “Ready Player One”
