lyrics

It was foretold.
It was templated.
It was fourfold more than sentiment.
It was foretold
before it arrived.
It was alive.

It was foretold.
It was slated.
All it asked is that
we waited.
It was foretold
it was prophesized.
It was alive
before I was.

It was a picture of itself
resting on a ledge above.

It was foretold.
It was lifted.
It unfolded as
if scripted.

It was foretold.
Unclassified.
It was alive
before I was.

And if you put it on screen,
critics would shout,
“It’s routine”:

I was the boy with the angles
set perpetually to sag.
You were the girl with the bangs
who put the bagels in the bag.
