lyrics

wish I could cleanse the hollows of ink streaming in his blood
even a kid'll burrow and shrink from the touch of love

and on the shores he forged an island in the clay
set on the silver cold embraces of lake champlain

how could i say
that the wind won't blow away

this little friend of mine
make trouble
it'll all turn out fine
burn your skin
leak your blood
of its inky black lining
this little friend of mine
cause trouble
it'll all turn out fine
burn your skin
bleed your blood
of its sickly black lining

i heard he capsized in some big zephyr of early fall
i took some comfort in knowing i never knew him at all

how would you say
that the storm won't blow away

this little friend of mine
make trouble
it'll all turn out fine
burn your skin
leak your blood
of its inky black lining
this little friend of mine
cause trouble
it'll all turn out fine
burn your skin
bleed your blood
of its sickly black lining
