Schwa Lyrics

Daffodils in Detroit

Lyricist: Ed McGee
Vocalist: Ed McGee
Once I smelled daffodils
when it should have been Detroit,
but now I only hear
this longing loudness
	of lonely silence,
	such ear shattering quiet.
	And me with my senses defenseless
	just as I was.
Please do know I'm ruthful,
please know I care.
This freedom is a jail.
Like a penny on a rail,
	time, empty time,
	runs me over like a train,
	leaves me there naked,
	and drowns me in its rain.
Is it music, is it madness?
Is it water, is it wood?
Is it flowers, is it outhouse?
Am I evil, am I good?
	And why does my loneliness,
	these lackings, exploit?
	And why smell i daffodils
	when I'm driving through Detroit?
