Maple Stave - Hiram the Blacksmith (live)

from by Various - Lake of Fake Live vol. 1



Maple Stave perform "Hiram the Blacksmith" live at Borelli's as part of PRFBBQ Chicago 2015


"Hiram the Blacksmith"

Dotted line from east to west dividing up
secrets on state lines built out of sheer consequence
date and time name places of all the all is fines
where memories make history with fiction and just a little time

Hold your face in hands rubbing out until all goes undefined
until you believe we could all be of the mind
to go and make a home from being alone

A smirk a smile to haunt us with what used to be behind
the words and swings the knots of clots that make
a warring pathway to another time
As he takes down and sings mixed prayers from behind the wing
Words far from how they were intended or deserved

A stifled cough a second glance
a beautiful lie of no composure or romance
a dotted line from east to west that satisfies any chance of ever saying we’d be alright
any reason to say we’d be just fine as the knotted wad of lies comes in and washes worry out now
