lyrics

wire

babies born from and into light
deep shades of vermillion and turpentine
lives blossomed come and go in turns
you raise what you can in this world
i write with cloth covered wires in the walls
long forgotten sneaky cursive fire hazards
in hopes of feeling it all under the skin
the ecstasy, the drop, the routine, the dramamine

highly fallible machines
a dozen phallic monuments erect on city property
whose money is paying for whose wet dreams
we come and dig deep holes at night
you know i know you know what i mean

we got basements filled with dreams, undreamed
we are wired to toss and turn in turmoil, unashamed
if there's one thing i have learned
it is how to poke the fire until i burn

i am living in the moment of being slowly ripped open
many times, on the the kitchen floor, akimbo, in motion
still we gather ourselves to make magic from scratch
go begging for the gatekeepers to have our broken backs
dress the magic in something a lot more mundane
plate me on a stage with soft-spoken restraint

i am buzzing head to toe, eye to eye and thumb to tongue
i am a live wire in the wall
and the flood is coming
if there's one thing i have learned
it is how to poke the fire until i burn
