Lyrics


Mitts and Hats
(Polly Edwards)


look up, taste its whiteness
breathe its stainless purity
falling all without favour
on the head of the magnate
and the bum with his head in the garbage

- from “The Falling of the Snow” by Raymond Souster

How can you make a change
When you’re too busy to rearrange
And how can you say that you opened up your door
When you don’t care what’s on the other side anymore

The knocking questions keep coming and coming and coming and coming
And you and I and everyone else, we keep running and running and running and running
I don’t know, well, nobody knows where we’re going but we’re going and going
And I wish it were snowing
‘Cause we all look the same in mitts and hats
And it’s not that it’s easier
But I breathe easier
Like I could make a change

Whose fault is it if someone don’t realise
When no one steps up and says, hey, open your eyes
And how do I think I can help anything
When I never let anybody hear me sing

The knocking questions keep coming and coming and coming and coming
And you and I and everyone else, we keep running and running and running and running
I don’t know, well, nobody knows where we’re going but we’re going and going
And I wish it were snowing
‘Cause I feel like making a change

How can you make a change
When you’re too busy to rearrange
And how can you possibly help anything
Unless you let somebody hear you sing
