Mild dry lines, i smudge the makeup on your face
Intimacy warns each of us have our place
I recognize relevance is better
But I still prefer to walk in the desert
At your throne
Cause terror finds its full echo in creation--
As to read in separate corners of your room

Who’s been covering our bodies in ecstasy? Y!!
Sung by the trees is a ruin that keeps us brief EF!!
Life hangs by cycles and mismanaged schemes
so slice off my hair and kiss off my dreams
My rage is splitting me open again...
Between the emptiness i've found here

I’ve dreamed of breathing as an earthworm
But now those shadows keep me
in your arms
The sense of the promise to make believe:
I can be brave
I can be honest
A human quake
Slightly unspoken
Just a disaster…
Mild dry lines, I smudge the makeup on your face
(will i ever find my place?!? this was supposed to be my home but i've never felt more like a stranger)

Who’s been covering our bodies
In ecstasy?
Sung by the trees is a ruin that keeps us brief, so brief
Life hangs in cycles and mismanaged schemes
they cut off my hair and run down my dreams
My rage is splitting open again…

I cry without speaking
And i run without weeping
Chasing something without health
Some sort of happiness
But i already know
I have it with you
Too prickly for words,
There’s no more wounds
