Pigeons Playing Ping Pong

"Fortress"

[Verse 1]
There was a boy let’s call him Roy
So the story goes, he’s got a feeling he can’t fake
He likes a girl we’ll call her Pearl
Who’s diamond always shows a kind of shimmer in her shake
Wouldn’t you know, there was a Joe
Who felt familiar flames
And had Pearl caught up in a daze
And so our boy we call Roy was forced to watch and wait
And live his life off in the wings

This feeling that has grown
Oh so fast
Reeling down
A rapid raft
That is on its own path
Still we scream
Dangers a laugh

[Chorus]
You and I down the open road
You are the queen inside my fortress
Dripping down, canvas of my dreams
You are the paint inside my portrait
Well here we go, down the golden road
You are the queen inside my fortress
Lock the door, throw away the key
You are the paint inside my portrait
Painting our soul
Painting our soul
Painting our soul

[Verse 2]
Time sure does fly with the wrong guy
Our Pearl began to know
Once ol’ Joe failed to make her faint
She felt the void while our boy Roy
Was patient as a dog
Whose bone was wrapped under the tree
Finally she set the terms in stone
Kicked Joe the road
She checked his baggage at the claim
And so our girl that we call Pearl
Was reminded that a stone
Looks best atop a proper ring

This feeling that has grown
Oh so fast
Reeling down
A rapid raft
That is on its own path
Still we scream
Dangers a laugh

[Chorus]
You and I down the open road
You are the queen inside my fortress
Dripping down, canvas of my dreams
You are the paint inside my portrait
Here we go, down the golden road
You are the queen inside my fortress
Lock the door, throw away the key
You are the paint inside my portrait
Painting our soul
Painting our soul
Painting our soul

[Jam Bridge]

[Verse 3]
There was a boy let’s call him Roy
So the story goes
He gathered up all of his strength
Found his girl we call Pearl
Stare into her soul
Asking the privilege of a date
Finally my half is now a whole
Says Pearl as she rejoiced
She checked that baggage at the claim
To join our boy that we call Roy
Who no longer has to wait
To live their life off in the wings

This feeling that has grown
Oh so fast
Reeling down
A rapid raft
That is on its own path
Still we scream
Dangers a laugh

[Chorus]
You and I down the open road
You are the queen inside my fortress
Dripping down, canvas of my dreams
You are the paint inside my portrait
Well here we go, down the golden road
You are the queen inside my fortress
Lock the door, throw away the key
You are the paint inside my portrait
Painting our soul
Painting our soul
Painting our soul
