Which Side the Skin

(Trish Jean)

Not many people know of the Ferryman’s washing line
Where his truths are pegged
Exposed but out of sight.

Reach for the Ferryman
He’ll have you out of bounds
Exposed but out of sight.

Always aiming at the ends by whatever means and route
Never left alone
He’ll say you belong to him.

He’ll offer you his jacket
From a boot pull a knife
He’ll say you belong to him.

Not many people know of the Ferryman’s washing line
Where trophies while
Don’t pay him on the wrong side.

Your skin is his fate
Emperor’s new clothes
You paid him on the wrong side.
