about

Some of us just can’t help wanting to know what the future holds for us, even if knowing doesn’t help.

lyrics

The Queen of Swords was third card down
Centered in a Celtic Cross
Half an hour since I’d slammed down
My last drink of the day

The Emperor was laughing
And the Page of Wands was indecisive
Early in the morning in this rat hole hideaway

Ashamed that I had come again
But I had to know the causes for my paralyzing fear
For what the future holds in store

Just one little hint
From the guiding light of divination
Trumps all hope or prayer in my internal little war

But she never tells me anything
I really need to know
But when the Tarot Reader speaks
There’s always something makes me listen
The shame and the sorrow

At 2 A.M. The Hanged Man
Came to visit me while I was dreaming
Calling me by name
From his rope high up in a tree

He whispered greater secrets
But in words I couldn’t understand
Not even the bottle could help to tell me what they mean

Can’t tell me there’s no one talking from the other side
Maybe she can help me this one time

Pulled on my shoes and last night’s clothes
Made my way to her apartment
Struggling to find the way carefully and slow

Hoping she’d have some new line
Connecting her with old arcana
Didn’t even seem surprised
When she opened up her door
