If I could burn thoughts away
with my butane lighter
I would be covered now in ash
though your voice would still be ringing

Thought I could sleep you away
lose you in corridors of dreaming
but in the morning I see clear
all of the places you'd be waiting

There's a world under the earth
don't it call when it all starts to hurt

There's a deep sky above all our eyes
though we may try we can't realize

Maybe it's like cold steel or ice that shoots through my head
As I turn the key and drive away into night
Screaming and pushing myself
Passing all the places I want to be
Is anything better than where I am

And If I the ox cannot go on
what of the load I've borne since the dawn
And if I the crow am lame
what of my flight
should I scratch across town until I'm gone?

You can't just sleep on a night like that or any night unique
without diving in to the depth of the moment
But all the same it adheres to you
and the song I sung rails across me

and I don't remember you at all


from De La Warr, released July 1, 2012
