Now Against The Staircase, Part 2

from by Last Lungs

lyrics

deer-eyed, we step out of the failing light. and heel by heel we take the hallway in our stride. and shed our clothes like torn-out paper lantern boats. and slink into the dark. Steadfast, the floorboards take our weight and moan. so we press back against a balustrade of bones. 'til there is no breath left in the turning night. to ask our names and sigh. breath left in the turning night. (our skin is razing) to ask our names. breathless in the turning night. (on the railing) to ask our names. breathless in the turning night. (our skin is braille and) to ask our names. (what it says is nothing but) a sigh
