lyrics

TURN TO STONE

Tore my stars apart,
so we were all messed up,
with fearful dust and light
and both our names in flight
And with our wings almost lost,
I went to the store
and focused on the sky,
but all I got were cries

in the fire pit where people tossed me heaven-shit
while the lightning chattered nervously through all of it
and no one in the mist dared to remember us
as we returned to stone

Ripped my swan to blood
it was beautiful,
and someone caught the soul
embedded in my fall
I returned to drag you home,
but you were only lonely
and it rubbed off on my car
I left you to you war

in the water-pit where I knew you were dangerous
in the open air and swirling auditorium
you performed until trap door fell on both of us
and turned us both to stone

I could see, if you pressed me, going on like this for eons
with a bear hug round an open heart
and I could see if you pressed me, we might learn a better drunk kiss
with our friends outside a liquor store
and maybe if we hadn’t left us in the forest,
we’d be found there in the thawing spring with roses
and a terrible swift angel

Got my anxious fog
another rearview mirror
and you’re always in its glare
how can I prepare
when the surging waters fall
I think an ocean’s come to brush
my stupid hair,
but I’m alone who cares
