about

A song about the fall.

lyrics

Before the landscape drains itself of color
Before the parks & beaches shut their gates
Before the leaves fall off of all the branches
Things turn orange in these United States

The sunlight seems to take a leave of absence
The sky of blue & white turns into gray
You spend your evenings in a shroud of darkness
Things turn orange before they wilt away

The cold sets in, and then it stays
But it's not forever, you can count the days
The winter's long, but here's the thing
A winter's always followed by a spring

The winds may sweep the leaves onto your doorstep
The pile may be growing every day.
Well, take that shit and throw it in the garbage
If it's orange, you'll throw that shit away
You will one day! Things turn orange
And then they go away.
