Cobalt Blue
(Vic Chesnutt)
Lyrics taken from the Co-Balt album liner notes


The sky went papal purple as they started plowing forth
They gunned it over the grapevine they gave it all it's worth
When they glided to the valley floor the dark was like a blanket
That they pulled over their heads both crazy and complacent
They were hurtling toward something that they didn't understand
Propelled out of a past that was beyond their command

Cobalt blue, when they were through
Cobalt blue, what did they do

Dust was like magic sprinkled settling on the dash
As his hand finally found and pushed aside her pants
They struggled like constrictors they snapped together tight
They moved in concert instinctively and right
'Til big ripples of vibrations erupted from within
The middle of the both of them, shook their foundations

Cobalt blue, when they were through
Cobalt blue, what did they do

Flew from that fragrant forest funny soaring through the night
With a sizzle that was certain to short-circuit and ignite
It was fuel for speculation calculations conjured up
And the energy released was like some opium
They used their euphoria like a force-field
To shield them from the future form the inevitable

Cobalt blue, when they were through
Cobalt blue, what did they do

How smoothly power shifted from night into day
Morning didn't break so much as it did infiltrate
They were dirty and delirious they were damn near out of gas
So they took a truckstop exit in the shadow of mount shasta
And over eggs and toast and coffee they conversed convincingly
Convinced of their good fortune conspiratorially

Cobalt blue, when they were through
Cobalt blue, what did they do

Simple slingshot old "sink or swim'"
Ending was entirely dependent on their invention
It wasn't wrong of them if that's what you think
They did what they had to do they acted out of instinct
It was human nature that bound them together
They performed precisely as mathematics dictated

Cobalt blue, when they were through
Cobalt blue, what did they do

Cobalt blue, when they were through
Cobalt blue, what did they do
