living each day as if it is your last is emotionally unsustainable

lyrics

the steam from combustible fossil fuels
+ form some procession of molecules
a dreamless conception in tidal pools
a seamless perception of ruling rules
we're turnin' to talk, turnin' to tumble
turnin' to walk, turnin to fumble
for fate in decay, to crumble + fade
find sleeping bodies + kick them awake

*well there's an evolutionary argument
hell it's a pleasure being part of it
a temple with an organ at the heart of it
the knotted yarn you severed cuz' you couldn't find the start of it
you lost your way, you gotta ways to go
+ you wouldn't say, you made it so
you could syncopate or you could sink the boat
you seized the day + you cut it's throat

papa paid attention a hell to pay
mama said she don't know-what to say (I)
gotta head up on holiday
I gotta get up this morning
when it gets dark we don't need sun-tan lotion
we parked the car + left the trunk wide open
we're cool + smooth as the camels we're smokin'
swimmin' with sharks but it's a big, wide ocean

*

where the water meets the land
we'll pray to god we had two hands
+ dig our toes deep in the sand
we'll let the ocean drink us in
+ when electrolytic wind
+ how the water heals the skin
where the freckles spiral in
the dead sea taught me how to swim

*
