lyrics

Black holes / Tillian

Sticks and stones you broke no bones
And I’ll cover the tracks with a hastening sound

Plucking red feathers and pulling red skin
Sucking the poison out, in
The monster the terror
Sugar glazed black holes
They only add up on the screen

Restless fingers grasping to reach
Allowed in the ocean but never the beach
You showed me a spaceship but forgot to teach

Mercury vines come and go with the tides
They ask not for vengeance
Run thicker than blood
right along with the mud in the veins
So should we be sealing the deal?

Sticks and stones you broke no bones
I will cover the tracks with a hastening sound
No remorse you had no choice
And I’ll cover the cracks
with those self-made fresh scars

Pushing the boulder
transforming, I swim
Giving my best to the fool on a whim
The hanged man the tower
Ill-conceived lovers
bound to their work on the wheel

Speaking by fire and sleeping by creed
Always in power but never in need
The ruins of Atlantis, generations grieving the seed

A misguided prophet messiah of lies
Left us with Knots where there should be ties
The smell of old sweat and the buzzing of flies
And you're so full of chemicals
you glow in the dark
If I claw the distance behind your smile
Show guts and infiltrate your mind
Dismantle your atoms and rebuild my right

Strings don't align
They curve up in my spine
They serve no utility
Left taking comfort in her ability
To always see the natural possibility
and gracefully choosing the odd probability
the ones and the threes
in my spine and my knees
Its all there encrypted in genes
Along with the frenzy along with the tears

Sticks and stones you broke no bones
I will cover the tracks with a hastening sound
No remorse you had no choice
And I’ll cover the cracks
with those self-made fresh scars
