Wonderfully Terrible

[key of C, in 4/4]

[verse]
If you fill your house
full of everything you want
then finally when it’s full
you will have no
reason to go
out into the world where the world
has to be lived-in like
you were born and raised there.

[chorus]
Wonderfully terrible
when desires are all filled.

If you feed your mind
with a diet full of birdseed
your eyes will fly away
bent on becoming almost
one with the stars
two with the blue
three with the horizon’s distant view.

Wonderfully terrible
when desires are all filled.

[bridge]
Of what are your walls made?
What keeps them in tough with each other?
And what do they hold?
Ideas from the ancient father?
Loyalty from Mom or
silver and gold and crocodiles?

[verse]
If you fill your house
full of everything you want
then finally when it’s full
you will have no
reason to go
out into the world where the world
has to be lived-in like
you were born and raised there.

[chorus]
Wonderfully terrible
when desires are all filled.
