lyrics

I'm headed northwest with some fair-weather friends,
So here is my last will lest you forget

Read what you know,
Write what you don't,
And sing the rest

Stay in the shade, darling, stay in the shade,
Just as the sound of the marching men fade,
Won't you stay in the shade?

Consider young Icarus and his waning hubris,
His beating heart beats no more

And a prophet named Jonah, well he stretched in the heat,
The vine that provided now lay in defeat

Stay in the shade, darling, stay in the shade,
One day in St. Peter's voice we'll wade,
Won't you stay in the shade?

Read what you know,
Write what you don't,
And sing the rest
