about

There is a book by the same name as this song. In the book there is a story about, well, a man who mistook his wife for a hat. This condition is what often happens to people with Alzheimer in the later stage. I can only imagine how it feels.

lyrics

Strange how forms and shapes
have led me in their maze
In this common world
I live a deadly craze

All these signs and sighs
stand quiet all around
No picture in these lines
my only guide is sound

See my joys and woes
compressed to words and songs
I feel expressionless
without my rights and wrongs

Show me the face of a friend
or even a stranger would do
Sing me some red and some green
whisper me shades of blue
