This day of racket
and everybody squirreling
my idiot heart won’t stop beating the distance,
no, never,
and neither should yours

We all have ragged fingers
Sometimes it’s too much winter,
formulaic people crushing people
smoldering cars

I have a desire I have a desire
to build you up in lightning, make it glow
In love with your fire, so weird in your wire
Your head against my heart, won’t let it go

It’s more than anthemic
this screaming romantic
the thorns and owls entangled
empathetic with our arms out
lumbering stars

When no one’s watching
out for each other
our lungs like punctured
weather on the pavement, spinning
heartbreak into dumb wars


from Murmuroar, released December 18, 2018
Words by Matt Hart
Music by Matt Hart, Eric Appleby, and Pete Janidlo
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Mike Montgomery at Candyland in Dayton, KY
