Quilt

T.V. screens and magazines
Showin’ wounds that never heal
Take away humanity
True nature revealed

I give up on tryin’ to sleep
Tangled up in bed
Information overload
Rollin’ round my head

Wrap a quilt around the window
Wrap a quilt around the door
Wrap it all around the world
It’s getting cold

Feeling numb to reality
They just walk on by
Still the distance comforts me
‘cause I don’t have to try

City streets and vacant stares
Serve my needs today
The heavy armor that we wear
Won’t help us anyway

Wrap a quilt around the window
Wrap a quilt around the door
Wrap it all around the world
It’s getting cold

How can we see when instinct is to look away
How can that be, it doesn’t help us here to stay
Become aware
I’ll meet you there

Wrap a quilt around my window
Wrap a quilt around my door
Wrap it all around the world
It’s getting cold
