D A V I D E S S I G LYRICS: TRACKS FROM "INTO THE LOWERING SKY"
The Volume of a Wedge     E & A 3/4

Refrain
I knew you were lying - when you called me at midnight
With answers to questions - you already knew
I knew you were lying - when you said it was alright
You were lying to me - like I was lying to you

The part about how I could read Dostoevsky
In Russian or French as it happened to be
Of intergral formulas that never left me
And Jesus, how I felt at home on the sea

The part about how you came up from St. Thomas
On a two-masted schooner with money to burn
The part about all of your kids full of promise
Of long-distance phone calls they never returned

(refrain)

The part about how you would always be smiling
At the human condition that runs us aground
The part about how we all found you beguiling
Your innocence lost and now bitterness found

And the part about brotherhood now and for always
And the part about how we'd hold fast to the right
Like two sleeping babies passed out in the hallway
The mean drunken arguements tucked in at night

(refrain)
