lyrics

Swimming in quicksand
One hand reaching for a limb
Last breath
In a rushed mess
Risking quiet for a whim
I can’t talk it through
While I’m processing
There’s no words to
Match the blood letting
Kicking rocks
In a pine box
I paint a picture with a crooked nose
Everyone knows everything
The plots stops always at where we go
When succumb to the hum of a rumbling engine
Driving us forward on the concrete Oblivion

We’re building a monument to our love
We’re building a monument to our love



Beloved
I trusted everything you said
Through the young nights on old sheets
in a twin bed
hands running the map
charting new universes
You told me I was everything
told me what a heart like mine deserves is
caring hands
wide eyes
immune to the heartbreak
always trusted to yourself
to avoid where the dam breaks
The story is specific
you get it when you’ve fallen
You feel dragged then terrific
like the see saw is your calling
All in i am in the light of anxious mornings
Walking down the hallway
I can hear when the tea gets poured in
And that’s the routine i dream of never breaking away from
Writing about what we’ve built as a monument and totem
