In the blue grass I'll find them all
Entrenched in the marina, enclosed by a fence
Bathed in a light of various wavelengths

They slip through your hand in some kind of sequence
Fibonacci-esque but no to the Nth
If there's a natural base then I guess that makes sense

They weren't built for up here
They weren't built for up here
They weren't built for up here
they weren't built at all

Flying through the blue grass in spite of all the odds
Moving in formation, separated in squads
But this is not an army, there is not a boss
