Pleasure in Elysium

Elysium

A man with a bundle of balloons in his arms
Small feet that skim the darkened fairground
She’ll lift you to heaven if you give her a chance
The tantrum of summer relinquishing heat

Small feet that skim the darkened fairground
Nonchalant as an arcing crow
The tantrum of summer relinquishing heat
Clouds of ink in calm dispersal

Nonchalant as an arcing crow
Diving for coins in a pool in a dream
Clouds of ink in calm dispersal
Come on, get your things, it’s time to go home

Diving for coins in a pool in a dream
I will not encourage others to fly
Come on, get your things, it’s time to go home
To dance is to follow the direction of grace

I will not encourage others to fly
A man with a bundle of balloons in his arms
To dance is to follow the direction of grace
She’ll lift you to heaven if you give her a chance.
