Henry Jamison In March Lyrics

We met at the gas station and wandered round all day then we went home and

Sat sad-eyed in the darkness and played GTA

And the people all were simulacrum, just waiting to be slain

So I took the Black Hawk helicopter and watched the sun set over San Andreas

If I’d only known when I was seventeen oh what that gesture seems to mean that the world is full of shimming fish and bulls and honey and rain

In walked your father with his golden arm with his shirt undone and his heart undone he said “son” and you moved your thumb

Got out of the car and unloaded your gun oh Tom, you were a lonely one

In the basement room

That your dad blew through oh Tom

Your mother brought us Coca-Cola and so we paused the game

Coca-Cola

Your character was in mid-air with an expression close to shame and then he fell upon a woman who appeared to mouth your name and you got in the nearest car and lit right out for the equator

If we’d only known when we were seventeen oh what that gesture seems to mean

That the world is full of shimming fish and bulls and honey and rain

In walked your father with his golden arm with his shirt undone and his heart undone he said “son” and you moved your thumb got out of the car and unloaded your gun

Oh Tom, you were a lonely one in the basement room

That your dad blew through

Oh Tom

In March the crocuses were all in bloom

And we got off of the couch and walked out of your room

I said “Tom, you see it’s true. You love the world and the world, she loves you.”
