lyrics

In a memory it’s nothing to me
But still everything you swing and you sing
Inside of my mind the twine still unwinds
And seeps out the sides and out of my eyes
I hold both my hands turn pearls into sand
An oyster at sea is the inverse of me
Your frame’s full of fear your eyes can’t see clear
But I couldn’t care say what you need to hear from me

Alarms sound outside the prison surprise
The furnace has failed the guards have been jailed
Your sweet mystery’s cold transparency
It seems so opaque the tree branches break
Inside of your heart a dungeon so dark
Can only be seen inside of a dream
So hold out your hand pretend to be sand
And see what I’ll do see if I adhere to you

Your lungs will exhale your feet never fail
But no one can love a devilish dove
So if I come back I’ll dress all in black
And gaze at the ground and hear silent sounds
And the counsel agrees the breeze shouldn’t freeze
Until the ropes break and tree branches swing and shake
