On a ragged sailboat over thick black water in the ideas of October we sail by the light of a full moon.
I've got a drawing of you. You, losing all of your secrets... nothing I had witnessed prior - a precognitive apparition.
You left life behind you, but you come back in now through some twisted little door way, through a hole in the hull of a tugboat.
I feel your tongue against my teeth, now I've got silver eyelids, can't believe what I did. You and I & our peculiar fortune!
Lookin back to burning bridges, burning bright... I hope their fire keeps you warm at night.
Have you almost had enough? I"ve got one more statement left:
You made that bed, now lie in it. You made that bed, now lie in it all by yourself. You can have it all to yourself.
Looking back to empty cages, and that dead-eyed Sterling light... I had to run just to feel alright.
I was running to the sound, you were nowhere to be found.
I laid this path, I'll run on it.
I dug this well, I can find my own way out.
