lyrics

This dual excess harmony
it catalyzed the way I’d sleep
Next to overflowing bottles
and dew drop blues stained blotchy portraits of all three

The moment you woke you headed north
East Lansing’s surely seen it before
You left a light on in passing
My frost teared breath screamed a fire engine’s roar

Sure I’d spit off balconies and parking structures
Seeping rage
But see my blood won’t flow anymore
They let me dry the rest like this bore

I can’t see it’s too bright above
I can’t see
You’re falling like a sputtering star past me

What will goodness really win you
When subconscious action solely rules you
I looked you straight in the eye
Felt close to nothing, it’s more than I’ve seen in awhile

If only you were still deserving
You’ve found a circuit that’s tripped and yearning
I looked you straight in the eye
When the river was high, buzzing with cicada’s cries

I can’t see it’s too bright above
I can’t see
You’re falling like a sputtering star past me
