lyrics

walking out in scattered light
yellow flickers in the night
faded guides with no design
the sidewalk empty as i had hoped for
huddle towards the warmth
the comfort of being alone

every word that we shape to say
is hovering
to unfold and
to decay
and i envy all of their days,
sleeping,
at ease in the dirt
where we let them lay

picture painted in a frame
with odd, calculated shades,
of bodies flooding into empty space
golden hands, and emerald eyes,
their blurry speech in salty white
an image i use through the night
(every move is the same
at a predetermined pace
it's always the same)

walking out from a roaring sea
crashing,
and pulling again
eternally
i envy all of their days
floating
at ease where they let their heads
lay
