lyrics

easy now
float on the air in your body
the nibble of a minnow
leave your goosebumps behind me
throwing rocks at the driftwood
making its way in from Essex
before i leave here for good
my blood will fill these insects

the wrong words
are spoken
by me

easy now
breathe in the mouth of your sadness
there are still stones to throw
in the blue of this infinite atlas
we're cradled in the basin
of some big glacial scar
i can only hear the geese above
and the splashing of our hearts
as you and i saturate
like colors on some old record sleeve
my brain too soggy to remember
why i ever decided to leave
