lyrics

BLACK SWAN GREEN


You coughed my name up on your lawn so green
Your throat was glowing in the dark
I asked a black star what that name might mean
It spit dark matter from a heart, mostly spark

What’s the trick to place a face
to write your ghosts there and be so disturbed
Bleeding out is not a race,
Scalpel cutting out the power we deserve

Scorched efficiency
I’m so jittery
I think I’m losing what I’ve learned
Crushed and menacing
You’ve never been a queen
and I have never felt so fragile

Busted tongue and busted driveway, broken heart
A cloud slipped by me in a dress of winter fleas
You say I love you, but it feels like a trick,
a buzzing blister in a rocket ship of bees.
