body of years lyrics – mother mother

all the remains of a cadaver of days,
i keep hidden away, keep them there just in case.
i wanna visit that place,
blow the dust from the bones
off a body of years that i leave all alone.
just a body of years,

see the skin disappears
and the blood turns to stone
in a body of years now a pile of bones.
like a sheet of veneer
each a piece of my soul.
it’s a body of years that i leave all alone.

it’s just a body of years, now a pile of bones.
you know.
old soul who falls down
can’t stop trippin’ on these
old roads i go down
get back up and get my foot in the door,
and my face on the page
make my mark in the world
with a bat and a blade.
it’s a body of work that you can’t ever change
like a body of years that you take to your grave.
it’s just a body of years that i leave all alone.
it’s just a body of years, now a pile of bones.
like a sheet of veneer,
each a piece of my soul.

old soul who falls down
can’t stop tripping on these
old roads i go down
get back up and i’m a
old soul who falls down
can’t stop tripping on these
old roads.

it’s just a body of years that i leave all alone,
it’s just a body of years, now a pile of bones.
like a sheet of veneer,
each a piece of my soul.
like a pile of sh*t i can’t seem to forget.
just a body of years that i leave all alone.

tell-tale diary pages
they unveil a ghost from the ages
when bodies of years were breaking from all of the weight
of diary pages
tell-tale diary pages
