lyrics

oh, my mouth is dry. i'm hearing lights again. the odour of pencil on paper. the bass notes that shake through my fingers. the hair on the back of my neck. a-bristle with fatigue. a rictus of overtone series. that burn as i breathe through the memory. keep it down. in the cheap seats. knuckle down. give it elbow grease. keep it down. in the cheap seats. you're grist to the mill. you're standing still. you're a bleak child sat facing the window. make me an island. with the best of men. landlocked in ashtrays and broken pens. biros and dust for my skeleton. as hands like hammers. split my skewed phrenology. stock market symphonies flourishing. cash registers blaring the voluntary. when you were ranged. were ranged in columns before me. i could not speak. my eyes failed. so many misshapen drawings. when you were ranged. were ranged in columns before me. my death by water flowing. though this undiscovered country. read to me tonight, please. won't you read to me tonight, please?
