about

“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.” ― Aldous Huxley

lyrics

They showed me what to say, and I believed what they told me

These days, I find I want to slow down
When every step’s a stumble
You don’t bother brushing off the dust

They showed me what to say, and I believed, I believed what they told me

These days, I find I want to stop
Take a look around
Breathe the air
Maybe take a stab and something new

Remember when we were young we played music to try and make some cash
I pulled my hair out for those fools for a lousy few dollars
Our chins up we kept the rising dust at bay
Believed we’d actually make it, someday

This patch of sky is mine
The moon is in it, and it is bursting
Apart. Its pieces dust space with glowing white flames
But the moon is inside me
And my voice spits out glitter
Epitaphs but it all goes the way it goes anyway
