Track Name: Sea Creature
I was in an ocean on a mercury mixture
Filling my lungs, completely ruined
You were something mythical, never imaginable
Always desirable, softer than noon
I somehow trusted my desires again
Knowing their peace was like a restless child
I somehow trusted the stillness of a year
Like the stillness of ripples or the stillness of light

And by now all purpose and thought has dissolved in salt
Just to scale your invisible skin
Hiding beneath the waves and smiles and pleasant hand gestures
Was the dark figure forming beneath the boat I was in

As the evening makes her closing remarks
I’m frightened by the thought of you in another hand
I’ll gather all the coins from my dresser drawer
To take you to this forever foreign land
Outside it’s a furnace but I’ll keep you in the bathtub
I’ll you ever clutching the corners of my mouth
I’ll gather all the coins the ones I’m desperately counting on
And I’ll be there waiting with my will or without

And by now our purpose and thought has dissolved in salt
It’s not dark, just remarkably dim
Hiding from the town between some trees watching our house burning
And dark figures forming around me and within

As the evening makes her closing remarks
We sat a while recollecting Sunday drives
As the evening makes her closing remarks
We sat a while, yeah we sat and we talked

As the evening makes her closing remarks
