lyrics

I know
Our frozen age
Returns to gold

As I row
Internal waves
Destroy the coast

Swift into dark
Eyes like keyholes
Partially nude
Past lives ripple
Bathed in blue light
Cold as a mirror

Drag your shadow through a pack of wolves
Scratch your name
into
the horsehair plaster walls and burn them down
Spill opaque
clouds in concrete swamps
And lay the face to waste
Feed it to the final flame

In vernal pools
When the soft light turns to rust
Go test the water you'll find me there
Crushed to dust
the smoke and the mirrors will keep me there
the ghosts and the fevers will guide my hands

Drag your shadow through a pack of wolves
Scratch your name
into
the horsehair plaster walls and burn them down
Spill opaque
clouds in concrete swamps
And lay the face to waste
Feed it to the final flame

Phantom pains
control the hands
that slowly choke me
I can feel hours in their moans

Black pools
In spring
It comes
It goes
Change your face little changeling
Your skin it cracks and crows
Black clouds
In spring
It rains
It pours
Sing your song little starling
This nest is not your home

Now
You know
There's hidden strength
Contained in those pools
Now
You know
You can't escape without
The right tools

Ice water
Fill the dry depression
seep into the soil
Drink this viscous liquid
Soak it up
bring it to a boil

I am the only one
Who'll keep you from falling apart
Spellbound
Shallow in the basin
vacant
Knee-deep in the breeding grounds
