Resolution Road - Karine Polwart

Resolution road
Who's your friend and who's your foe?
And how do tell the one from the other?
Who's on the inside? Who's undercover?
Who looks like you do?

Resolution road
'Round and 'round and 'round we go
Who makes the circle and who's in the middle?
Who talks in reasons and who talks in riddles?
Who looks like you do?

Don't speak without thinking
Don't sleep with a stranger when you're drinking
Don't jump in a ship when it's sinking

Resolution road
Learn to speak your heart in code
Try to embody the laws of encryption
Try to defy all the laws of description
Who looks like you do?

Resolution road
Buy a ticket for the show
Who talks in riddles? Who talks in reasons?
What kind of endings do you believe in?
Who looks like you do?

Don't speak without thinking
Don't sleep with a stranger when you're drinking
Don't jump in a ship
Don't speak without thinking
Don't sleep with a stranger when you're drinking
Don't jump in a ship when it's sinking...

Resolution road
Who's your friend and who's your foe?
How do you tell the one from the other?
Who's on the inside? Who's undercover?
Who'll be your Lazarus? Who'll be your lover?
Who looks like you do...?
