lyrics

In the recess
in the recession
I found my way around the hallow sound
of a black hole
You know of
thirty things
that will hang big wings
on depression
but flying out’s
not allowed
in the shroud
of a dying wish
it’s pinned in with a butterfly stitch
makes you fall

I will call out
to the fallout shelter
are there any survivors, anyone one of us left alive?
echo echo
it answers
with a silence
that’s taking prisoners
seven year itch
out of black pitch
pinned in with a butterfly stitch
thought that we could be it, see it
now we won’t

oh maybe
maybe the recess catches the light
in what we’ve done
it’s lighting fireworks
from the sun

In the abscess
in the obsession
We lost my way out the open mouth of a blue whale
You speak of
dirty things
that will always sting
learned my lesson
I can’t tell which
dug ditch
has you pinned in with a butterfly stitch
thought that we would save it, brave it
now we won’t.

oh maybe
maybe the recess
catches the light in what we’ve done
it’s lighting fireworks
from the sun
