Tangerine

we paved the day in passion
and found a cool dry place

we paved the day in golden ash
and found an empty space

we paved the day in glory
and found our reckless shame

we paved the day in tangerine
it tasted all the same

tangerine

we journeyed over distant seas
to find our home again

we dug a whole to china
just to find where we begin

we tasted and we took it back
our juicy little joke

we burned our biscuits brown and black
just because we liked the smoke
