lyrics

Robin
we could hold in our hands
the same stuff
in God's hands
if we're unafraid
to taste the fruit
in the garden
dissolve it
on the tip
of my tongue
it's all coming undone
this tidy little fiction
I
memorized
to remind myself
I'm just decomposable matter

I will climb
up this mountain
I'll go deep
in these woods
I will retrace
this river
to get back to you

you're my
guardian angel
my self-same well
my hallelujah
my midnight bell

oh

when I came around
the sun was coming up over Stockholm
Lilly I'm sorry
I woke you up
throw down
your keys
to me
go back to sleep
it's been a crazy night
felt like
oblivion
without a flashlight
or the bottom
of the ocean
on a single
breath of air
an astronaut
watching my spaceship
disappear

cellophane mermaids
translucent and blue
commune me to the shoreline
trickling fire
I stood
at the foot
of your shrine
trembling
you burned
in my eyes
meaning
now that you know
the truth
what will you do?
will you crumble
under the burden
of a culture
you inherited
or will you
barrel headfirst

into the golden eternity
