lyrics

In the heart of the heart of the heart of the heart of the storm
I see vortices and straining wings and caustic light and cellaring.

In the might in the might in the might of it all
You see silent stars and dying eyes and everything gets let inside

In the heart in the heart of the heart of the heart of the storm
You write matrices and counterfeits and plastic lights and Celcius.

In the end in the end in the end in the end we were forged
You will light up all the rising signs and someone tells you you just died

And someone tells you you just died.

In the ducts in the buzz in the cars underground it is stored.
We will rise with all the ensigns in the rights and ranks of industry.

In the dark in a nerve in the pulse of a pain we ignored,
you drink hope from all these ions of potassium and sodium.

In the end in the end in the end in the end we were forged.
You glow red hot in the middle and I tell you you were fine and the battle’s straight.

In the night in the night in the night in the night in the store.
We’ll light up a fire and fuck all their selfish dollars.

And someone tells you you just died
And someone tells you you just died

When I dive into the cii---ty after you I know that you’re already gone (buh buh da dah dah )
Scars patterned by these years of wearing through, I know I don’t know what I want.

Oh time is such a strange place never mapped: slow mires and messes hanging on those days we save in permanent form.
I came apart and reassembled and I don’t know where ended up I don’t know where I am.

In the ducts in the buzz in the cars underground it is stored.
I will ride inside these tubes a while scraping off old shells of mine

In New York in the fall in the calm of a loss of control
Try to put myself together right and wish you well in your new life.
