lyrics

I got my black eye on your birthday.
You got your theories, I got my maps.
Well there's a braid in our mind that remains as atoms,
and I can't unravel that.

You got your steel soul on my birthday,
rusted and dripping in the sun.
Sometimes a heart is a wounded hummingbird
tethered to what you want.

Your tender thirsty cuts smell like the springtime blooming.
Let's savor simple great roots of our torso bleeding.
Crush the day, move to aim, dowse the ground with water, cuz I am dragging home the anchor.

Don't you worry, it ain't too heavy for me (but the ice)
don't you worry, it ain't too awkward for you (but the sludge). We are just two frozen fountains
waiting for spring.

I got my black eye on your birthday,
you got your theories, I got my maps.
Sometimes a heart is a wounded hummingbird
tethered to what you want.

Let's savor simple great roots of our torso bleeding.
We were once true in time but the arteries are gasping.
Crush the day, move to aim, dowse the ground with water, cuz I am dragging home the anchor.
