Forthright
(Vic Chesnutt )

Looking in the hourglass
Ants in the sand
Reflected in the oil lamp
I can see the wrinkles in your hand
You can be forthright with me
You can be forthright with me

Next to the pot-bellied stove
Hand on the flue
Photograph on the roll-top desk
Is it of you
You can be forthright with me
You can be forthright with me

Half a pound of hominy
Soaking in a wooden bowl
Underneath the cheesecloth
In the safe hold
You can be forthright with me
You can be forthright with me
