Mog
Rainbow Debris
Lyrics
The scrambled egg
Of my golden goose
Trying to fly
But my wings come loose
I dream a little dream
I wish upon a star
Come out, come out
Wherever you are

Falling rainbow debris
Starts to rain down on me
From silver clouds
Can I catch them now
But they escape
Before taking shape
Rainbow debris
Floats away on the breeze

In the forest
I'm hoping to find
The dust and crumbs
Of what's left behind
I'm sure these giant boots
Are glued to the ground
The piper calls
But it's barely a sound

Falling rainbow debris
Starts to rain down on me
From silver clouds
Can I catch them now
But they escape
Before taking shape
Rainbow debris
Floats away on the breeze

Tired
Wired
Glimpses are caught
When not being sought
Fragments evade
And quickly they fade

Seeking pieces
Of what's in between
All the sparkle
Of things seldom seen
They are shimmering
Hovering overhead
Fleeting windows
Of silkworms and thread

Falling rainbow debris
Starts to rain down on me
From silver clouds
Can I catch them now
But they escape
Before taking shape
Rainbow debris
Floats away on the breeze

Thank heavens
It's coming
The heavens
Are here
My precious cup
Is filling up
Then my head
Is clear
