lyrics

a sharp wind
the first break from a summer that lasted too long
it puts a light behind my eyes that only shows
that I’m still here
red, red swollen ‘round my ribs
too slow to move while I have the chance
too slow to move while I still have the chance

when all I want is something
that just won’t make me sick
pulling strips off of my fingers
again and again
again and again
pulling strips off of my fingers
that fall like platitudes
watching the same scenes again
with different faces

but I still can’t move I still can’t think without
inspecting it a hundred times
around in circles I can’t fill with the space
hanging in the air above my bed
but I still can’t move I still can’t think without
inspecting it a hundred-thousand times
around in circles I can’t fill with the space
hanging in the air

I’m just listening
for a time when things go completely quiet
when I can think without worrying
and I can breathe around my hands
when I can see nothing
and maybe know something about myself

internalize or demystify
shed the world or watch it wrap around your finger
feel it grip tight tight tight
right before your eyes
right before your sullen eyes
internalize or demystify
let it pass but don’t you dare touch it
don’t give it a name
don’t give it a name
don’t give it a name
don’t let it leave your sight

laying still when the trees go to sleep
I can’t see you scurry among
stray pieces of the sun
you know where it’s settled
I didn’t know it had fallen
you know where it’s settled
I didn’t fucking know it had fallen
