lyrics

Crystalline sunlight
Breath on the window
Bags in the hallway
Blood on the stairs

Ending in paper
Thinking it’s over
the bowl on the table
has spilled all the pears

and you left
and you’re gone
but the walls are your arms
They pull tighter and tighter and tighter and

Here in my home
I don’t belong

You are teeth
You are tongue
You are eyes
and you come
to lay waste
to
what’s
left of this place

Terror in daylight
why do you harm me
why do you haunt me
why do you follow

I could forgive you
if you could stay buried
I gave you history
Give me tomorrow

but the tattered old blankets won’t let me escape
they pull tighter and tighter and tighter and

Here in my home
I don’t belong

You are teeth
You are tongue
You are eyes
and you come
to lay waste
to
what’s
left of this place
and
that’s
all that I have
all that I am
all that I am

And you left and you’re gone
but the walls are your arms
