 +The jacaranda are wet with color, 
 +        G                            D 
 +and the heat is a great paint brush, lending color to our lives, 
 +     ​G                                C 
 +to the air, and to out faces; but I'm going to Alaska 
 +              ​                        D 
 +where there'​s snow to suck the sound out from the air. 
 +C G 
 +G       C 
 +Up, yes, in the branches, 
 +G                       D 
 +the purple blossoms, go pale at the edges; 
 +        G                              C 
 +there is meaning in the shifting of the sap, and I see in them traces 
 +G                           D 
 +of last year, but then they hadn't grown so strong, 
 +G                                    C 
 +and their limbs were more like wires. Now they are cables. 
 +G                           ​D ​                   G 
 +thick and alive with alien electricity,​ and I am going to Alaska, 
 +     ​C                         G 
 +where you can go blind just by looking at the ground, 
 +where fat is eaten by itself 
 +C                         G 
 +just to keep your body warm. 
 +G                         C 
 +Because from where we are now, it seems, really, 
 +    G                           D 
 +that everything is growing in a thousand different ways; 
 +G                                        C 
 +that the soil is soaked through with old blood and with relatives 
 +G                                           D 
 +who were buried here, or close to here, and they are giving rise 
 +G                                C 
 +to what is happening. Or can you tell me otherwise?​ 
 +     ​G ​                         D 
 +I am going to Alaska, where the animals can kill you, 
 +        G                     C 
 +but they do so in silence, as though if no-one hears them, 
 +        G                         D 
 +then it really won't matter. I am going to Alaska. 
 +C                                     G 
 +They tell me that it's perfect for my purposes.
