 +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
 +              G                         D
 +where there'​s snow to suck the sound out from the air.

 +Up, yes, in the branches,

 +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.

 +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.
