That they went to help the sea
but that help was only me,
and mine eyes were filled with lightning,
and my hair was only birds

That they offered me best wishes
We stayed home and broke the dishes,
and we laughed the storm approacheth,
and we cried this life’s a blur

with its flooding claw marks
with its serpent fang marks
with its poison apple pie inside
a limousine of mud

with its children glowing
with its business blowing
smoke into the eyes of every goodness
we had hoped to be a part

That they went to help the sky,
but that help was only cries
in a bitter darkness, while the trees
just cut their losses

That they came to take my place
for which they offered me a fake
experience of being more
than all my mind

of what goes on in the dirt
of what goes on in the blood
of what is spring another flood
we can’t contain


from Murmuroar, released December 18, 2018
