lyrics

My toes touch the October sea --
a wave fall back to welcome me.
Foul overpass I lie beneath --
my train might come so I can't sleep.

 | And you've been lurking round this hole
 | to pray for rain and save your soul:
 | A dance that happens more and more,
 | as hopeful as an apple core.

The sage that blossoms fragrantly --
it shelters things that I can't see.
Now take me to that eastern shore --
for in the snow our tracks are clear.

  | I lay my love down like a lamb
  | and spill the blood from both our hands:
  | To softly mingle in the mud,
  | O foolish great eternal blood.

Will Armageddon come to call --
for I desire the slightest thrill.
The unrequited multiply --
the satisfied stand still.
