lyrics

Seeds but no soil
The earth, in my time away, sowed with salt
Once I was true, before I knew
the cold, the dark, the deep

And now you will know them
and I won't be alone again

Draft shadows bending to woes
Severed by dripping windows
White walls protect from debts past due
Sleek white walls too shallow to keep him from spilling in

Salt mixing with fresh
Arching up to take a breath
Tension won't break
Once I was true, before I knew
the cold, the dark, the deep

And now you will know them
and I won't be alone again

Alas, the kindness ends
to see the man underneath
A boy denied a grape is scorned
but a grape is not wholly for wine
Bear a wrath stomped down through time

Guess the bite of false widows
Minor harm done unto foes
White walls instead victimise you
Venom fills you in

Please why don't you keep your head under there
like I did for so long
Fill the cask with a gravel freeze
Plug the cave underwater with an iceberg arm
Soft curves sink in linoleum
Drip drip drip drop down pale blue
Sweet curves touch vinegar skin
Scorched by my prison, my plasma prison
Take my bleeding warmth, now you want me
The cold, dark, deep, I've known it twice
We'll never make it to the city, never make it
We're bones beneath the sea

The cold, the dark, the deep
Tell them I was kind
A kind man

And now you've come to know them
we will never be alone again

Alas, the kindness ends
to see the man underneath
A boy disguised a saint for gain
but a saint is not promised heaven
Step in white
One hundred more
