lyrics

Strange river rolling
Moved as if pushed by greed
Cigarette ash falling from the sky
Why you gotta be so mean
Dead at the roots
No earth to cling to
The trees take off their clothes as they lay down on the road
I’m thinking about a friend back home
Moved here to be closer
I had to sink to see:
What bribes the wholesome to trade in vitality
I can’t find no eyes to lock with mine
No way we could thrive when the city is dying
Dogs bark in tunnels
The shadows have gone to sleep
Ink on the walls ink on the arms
Walking Backwards through my father’s dream
The seeds all twisted
Myth of fertility
The color is all gone with the birds for a new sun
What will become of me
Moved here to be closer
I had to sink to see:
What bribes the wholesome to trade in vitality
//I can’t find no eyes to lock with mine
No way we could thrive when the city is dying//
//Taking slow paling breaths
And my body’s a mess //
