lyrics

earthship

in an alternate universe
i live in the earthship of your heart
and the river never truly dries out
we can always pump water
from underneath our clavicles
what if i told you i have always lived
in the castle of your spine
in one of these silly little twisted spires
while you lived in mine

you and i combined
with everybody out of their goddamn minds
noone sells what we're buying
guess we'll tug on our own fishing lines
may i propose to you, this life
with all its nooks and crannies and highs
and ugly surprises
i got space in mine

in a parallel reality
i live as alive as i can be
got buckets of smiles in the morning
i dump out the window into the street
but you can come up and have a real good look
at the cockroaches behind the fridge
bring a couple more of my real good friends
the roaches are angry and armed to the teeth

and i quiver and i shake most of these nights
in a fever that won't break, it just bends
it wraps itself tightly across my back
reaches around and holds both of my hands
this reality is only palpable when expanded
if you hear me curse in my sleep
just be my friend, yes?
through the static i can tell
we speak the same fucked up language

you and i combined
with everybody out of their goddamn minds
noone sells what we're buying
guess we'll tug on our own fishing lines
may i propose to you, this life
with all its nooks and crannies and highs
and ugly surprises
i got space in mine
