lyrics

Wake me up if I start to scream
I can’t tell you the things I dream

I was swallowed like a mayfly
a bobby pin sinking in the sea
When you came riding on a waveform
dial tone rolling home to me

I don’t wonder cause now I know
You can’t dance if you got no soul

You were pretty on the outside
tryptophaned, marzapaned and meek
I could almost see your insides
bustin’ out when you’re about to speak

And you told me to take you there
lie you down in the green grass
you asked me to taste you there
in the shade of the mountain

Bless this dust that was once my lover
and damn to black cloud that hung above her

When I was in my left mind
I could see the troubles easily
But I could never seem to stop my
minor key memories to be

And you asked me to take you there
lie you down on the train tracks
you asked me to waste you there
in the shade of the mountain
