lyrics

Naked and trembling we enter
Desperate scratches
Hoping to fly
Hopeful then hopeless
We flounder
Eating the answers
That's how we die

Rowing unending rivers
Swallowing slivers of beauty sublime
Dragging a barrel of wishes
Waiting for kisses
That's how we die

Unfinished pictures, played out hands
Serving the sentence we can't understand
Arching towards heaven, the music was canned
Memory fails us courting the land

Hungry for what we have tasted
The years that we wasted
The moons that we cried

Shielding
Looking for shelter
Lottery chances
Still we try

Puzzles to manufacture
Gravity fractures
That's how we die

Unfinished pictures, played out hands
Serving the sentence we can't understand
Arching towards heaven, the music was canned
Memory fails us courting the land
Moving the sofa, riding the rails
Keeping our secrets dumped out in pails
Arching towards heaven, the music was canned
Serving the sentence, courting the land
