The last line on this album "though they tempted me with evil and with good" was inspired by a short story by Oscar Wilde called The Fisherman and his Soul. It's a non-comedic reversal of The Little Mermaid in which a fisherman falls in love with a mermaid and in order to be with her he must get rid of his immortal soul. Throughout the tale the fisherman's soul returns to tempt him away from the mermaid, first promising a life of evil and luxury then promising a life of good deeds. Nothing can tempt the fisherman away until his soul mentions the dancers who move on the land with their beautiful feet.


And the staff called out of work
And a birds called in your sleep
And we sat up on a roof
In the same dream the same dream

Reading shiny recipes
Stealing phrases where we can
Finding vehicles and faces
In the sand in the sand

Calling back the marching sky
In it’s great candescent band
How your love had slipped away
From my hands from my hands

Who can hold the shifting light
I would keep it if I could
Though they tempted me with evil
And with good and with good
