Simple Town

This song is by Willy Mason and appears on the album If The Ocean Gets Rough (2007).

It's a simple town; with a lonely sound
There's demons in the trees
Come and rescue me
It's a simple town; where the face becomes a veil
Where the eyes become a jail;
For the settlers minds to pale
Its just a simple town
Where the secrets drown
Before they get around
But tonight they have been found
With the words come shatter out your mouth
You made a thundercloud come and rain on me
Under a simple sky in a simple town
You made a knife of sound, cut the air for me
Cut the secrets free
It's a simple town, just a simple town
But that simple choked
The life right out of me
Cause simple things
Aren't so simple anymore
Death is easy to ignore
When its numbers on a screen
And that simple town
It likes a simple war; chooses red or blue
The rest can be ignored
While the secrets wait; on tortured lips
Till they're moved to sing; with the passion of a kiss
And there's the words...
