lyrics

On the tidal wave above the bed
in the cresting foam above their heads
you can almost see what rides inside
the broken box with shattered sides
fingers have fit through splintered gaps
and reach for nothing through the cracks
but meet each other on the shore
and consolation mutes their roar
What dead end wall will greet our feet
what absolute will meet our needs
which brick will fall to let light through
which bit of concrete comes unglued

Here here’s where it was found
here’s where every piece was found
here here’s where it was found
one piece of every piece was found

here here’s where it was found
not too quiet not too loud
here here’s where it was found
the words were facing upside down

Each hair was plucked
one at a time
the stretch of skin
from elastic line
on coolest vinyl down to rest
the cone was dripping down their chest
was not the pressure that did them in
with tonsils shoved against their chins
and staples pried from fabric taut
as nails slide underneath their slots
what dead end wall will greet our feet
what absolute will meet our needs
which brick will fall to let light through
which bit of concrete comes unglued
