abysskiss lyrics

 

terminal paradise 

warm

so warm

screaming in the field

as i was born

 

worm,

will you return me

to the robin’s beak?

i’ll be a bird

 

terminal

we both know

let the rest of me go

see my death become a trail

and the trail leads to a flower

i will blossom in your sail

every dreamed and

waking hour

 

woman,

woman

hold me in your heat

till i remember

 

terminal

we both know

let me rest, let me go

see my death become a trail

and the trail leads to a flower

i will blossom in your sail

every dreamed and

waking hour  

from 

no one can be my man be my man be my man

be my man be my man be my man

no one can be my woman be my woman

be my woman

 

one ear to the ground

one dog at my neck

one tongue to my tongue

wanting to protect me

 

from

 

no one can be my man be my man be my man

be my man be my man be my man be my man

no one can be my woman be my woman

be my woman

 

one ear to the floor

my dog barking loud

couldn’t tell for sure

where the screaming sound

was coming

 

from

 

one ear to your womb

puppy on the floor

baby's coming soon

wonder if she’ll know

where she's come

 

from

womb 

seven wide years

and there’s soil to till

when you thread your fingers through i feel quite well

we could be the riptide or two mountains growing still

 

when the eye gets heavy in the womb

 

dripping your tears

like a precious warm spring

my heart will always find you when your heart freely sings

mine would never bind you with a diamond or a word

 

when the eye gets heavy in the womb

when the eye gets heavy in the womb

 

woman, mighty woman

you’re a friend i need

when you hold me to your breast you’re bleeding as i bleed

please reveal the question to me let the answers leave

when the eye gets heavy in the womb

when the eye gets heavy in the womb

when the eye gets heavy in the womb

when the eye gets heavy in the womb 

out of your mind 

it cannot be explained

like a single membrane

same old dream from the pillow

 

laugh along with her laugh

lying when she’s lying

she gets angry i feel so

 

is it any wonder i get lonesome for you?

get out of your mind

 

demons are the dragons

she is not a dragon

but i’m afraid of her fire

 

my heart is a wagon

my heart is a wagon

but i can’t push her desire

 

is it any wonder i get lonesome for you?

get out of your mind

annie, my love pulls the trigger on you

get out of your mind

and into my arms 

cradle

cradle more

the hours reel

cradle more

how you feel

 

baby you’re still too proud to come down

maybe i’m still too loud to hear

all the waves ascend and disappear

 

like a storm,

the air you steal

glacial form

the icy heel

 

baby you’re still too proud to come down

maybe i’m still too loud to hear

all the waves ascend and disappear

 

earth is born

to wound and heal

cradle more

the hours reel

 

baby you’re still too proud to come down

maybe i’m still too loud to hear

all the waves ascend and disappear

symbol

 fly make flea make haste make waste eight makes infinity

times i’ve tried to make breaks, embrace for the enemy

meet my face to face time try to find the diamond

counting time as time counts me, the river to the island

 

do you not do you not tell

that smile always makes me well

do you see circling through?

that’s how one returns from two

 

the symbol of your love is time

the symbol of your love is time  

blue and red horses 

blue and red horses on the run

i think the angel is jumping the gun

little red lantern watching my son

maybe the angel is jumping the gun

 

i’m a lot of boy, with a lot of nerve

do you wanna toy with me?

 

little red flower on your wrist

maybe the angel fired and missed

little red flower on your wrist

maybe the angel fired and missed

 

i’m a lot of boy with a lot of nerve

do you wanna toy with me?

 

little red forest in your room

i hope the angel is getting here soon

little red forest in your room

i hope the angel is getting here soon

 

i’m a lot of boy with a lot of nerve

do you wanna toy with me?  

abyss kiss

try and get some rest

i’ll do the rest

think to what the roses find

with the arms of passion

this is how we fashion

war’s worried mind

in the hour i loved you

like it dream it was true

in the base of my pine

 

wilderness, vast abyss, will we ever kiss?

 

in her mother's fortress she was brushing horses

manes and tails flicking flies

naked as the window

baby if it’s real,

so no need to apologize

 

wilderness, vast abyss, will we ever kiss?

 

love is on her shoulder, love is on the boulder

in the eyes, in the eye

love never leaves, love is the leaves

in the sky in the sky 

what  can  you  say

 what  can  you  say  to  remind  me 

how  to  be  loved  by  you?

wave  to  the  winding  river

it’s  a  view  of  you

for  the  long  grass  growing  in  silence

there’s  an  equal  knowing  inside  us

calmly  showing  for  to  guide  us

pray  you  can  find  me 

i’ve  been  busy  turning  into

more  transparent

i  could  look  a  lot  like  you

for  the  sharp  glass  cutting  of  the  cold  wind 

the  sharp  glass  loosing  of  your  best  friend

the  story  bruising  as  it’s  written

rain  in  your  bedroom

this  is  how  i  love  you  back

to  follow  the  red  moon

follow  her  and  never  look  back

there’s  a  star  that’s  glowing  on  your  eyelash

and  the  wet  light  moaning  as  we  rehash

oh  my  darling

what  can  you  say  to  remind  me

how  to  be  loved  by  you? 

10 miles

to die in your arms

your words forming again

we kiss very hard and wild

 

 

to rise in the dark

like birds praying on skin

we pray with our oxygen

 

 

Jo, nothing is real

we still have that feel

you’re closing up the bar

i’m warming up the car

ten miles away

 

 

two children of ours

they came twirling in

we laughed very hard for a while

they’ve grown very far

and tall

how we miss them,

though happy they’re traveling

 

 

Jo, nothing is real

but we still have that feel

you’re closing up the bar

i’m warming up the car

ten miles away

 

we set no alarm

eyes wide, six a.m.

wake up on the farm

slowly

walk to the barn

horse feed

you take the yarn

i’ll read, i’ll read

 

Jo, nothing is real

but we still have that feel

you’re closing up the bar

i’m warming up the car

ten miles away

 

to die in your arms,

your words forming again
