lyrics

I have travelled through the troves of the undisciplined
I have rolled in the same mud as the hedonistically absurd
I have assassinated superman himself and created a moral monument of the ideal me in his stead
I have knocked down too many walls

I fear the bear that’s hibernating and waiting for me
I have
I have

I was waiting patiently
for your hand to graze me
but I feel so uneased
without that pleasure

Tighten up your grip swiftly
and wake me from this sleep
that’s got me snorin’ deep
I need that sweet

Dreamy states can follow us
as you drift through those plush
cannons of ivy
won’t someone help

Skip the railing, skip the stairs
this one way’s in repair
won’t you strip it bare
and start again

I was walking on clouds
With your dreams in my hands
And your head dripping past my grip
Come and cover me, unapologetically
With the might of an incouragable beast

Drift below, drift below,
Below the surface, go go go

Drift below, drift below,
Below the surface, go go
I can’t be a 24-hour romantic but I still want you to stick it
I have been oscillating between the dichotomies of
Have and have not and have and have not and have not and have

Comforted with silent strokes
Trigger happy easy tokes
Separate the night from the light
Wait wait and we’ll go

Separate the night from the light
Wait wait and we’ll go
