‘Lemon’

Brain like a lemon
Look up to heaven
Jesus, come again

Plant a lemon tree
For fidelity
Healing, purity

What did I think true
When I said I knew
Before I loved you?

The lemon tree’s aim
To speak its own name
(The soil has no name)

Religious nonsense
All talk, no substance
Oh, where are my friends?

What did I think true
When I said I knew
Before I loved you?

Crushed ice on dry lips
The pulp and the pips
Impatiently sips

And nevertheless
He sees happiness
He learns happiness

What did he think true
When he said he knew
Before he loved you?

Brain like a lemon
Looks up to heaven
Born again again
