Wild Mouse Lyrics

The Wild Mouse

The singer imagines the boundary between life and death as an amusement park ride, then conjectures communicating with ‘little dead souls.’

The Wild Mouse

(Doyle/Kelley 2016)

Play Wild Mouse

Verse 1

Where do we find the Rim of Life?

Where do we find the Rim of Death?

The exact point where the living

can touch ghostly ones without breath,

tiny dead souls, so forgiving.

 

Chorus

Your rim . . . .

It’s a joyride, it’s a joust,

careening soul, a spiral,

thrilling ride, The Wild Mouse,

you flirt with them awhile,

it’s nothing you’ve been fed,

but they tell us instead

about a day you can re-pay.

 

Life and Death are not separate,

they just look that way.

 

Verse 2

Little souls who would flirt with us,

Little souls who would flirt with us

at the arc where our somber hearts

describe the universe of us,

drawing the living soul in parts.

 

Instrumental

Bridge

Ooo, Ooo, the Rim of Life,

Ooo, Ooo, the Rim of Death,

Ooo, Ooo, pure baby’s breath,

Ooo, Ooo, the Rim of Life,

Ooo, Ooo, the Rim of Death

Chorus

Your rim . . . .

It’s a joyride, it’s a joust,

careening soul, a spiral,

thrilling ride, The Wild Mouse,

you flirt with them awhile,

it’s nothing you’ve been fed,

but they tell us instead

about a day you can re-pay.

 

Life and Death are not separate,

they just look that way.
