Conspicuous by its absinthe

Conspicuous by its absinthe

We’ll put on a show tonight

Tomorrow we’ll need aspirin

But for now let’s dim the lights.

Deciduous life an axiom

The forest fire in summer

Will grow back in the fullness of time

But for now we are uncovered.

Conspicuous by its absinthe

Just one more for the road

We’ve all to do some traveling

We’ve all some way to go.

But I’m so tired of taking charge of me

It’s such a lot of work

It’s such a lot of digging

To find my way to earth.

Conspicuous by its absinthe

We’ll end a ten-year fast

We’ll blow a hole in the rafters

And fix the leak at last.
