born in a flash lyrics – mother mother

“born in a flash”

photograph, lookin’ down at me
i’m lookin’ at the past
something about my family in high contrast
something about my infancy in white and black
something about my memories
in a photograph, a portrait of the past

born in a flash

polaroid, 1954
it was a polaroid
’55 through ’56
were undestroyed, daddy was an anarchist
we can’t afford
somebody catching wind of this here

polaroid, a portrait of before

born in a flash
born in a flash
a little piece of the past
born in a flash

ohh
ohhhh, aahhhh, ohhh

photograph, a portrait of the past
born in a flash
born in a flash
born in a flash
born in a flash
