pontchartrain lyrics – vienna teng

sunday:
dark water draining north
the heat swells and bursts like plague

sunday:
ever-so-faint slow tambourine
glides onward toward the grave

who drew the line?
who drew the line
between you and me?
who drew the line
that everyone sees?

darling,
lake pontchartrain is haunted:
bones without names
photographs framed in reeds

darling,
what blood our veins are holding.
the overp*ss frozen
fires ablaze at sea

who drew the line?
who drew the line
that cuts to the skin, buries me in?
tell me, who drew the line
darling don’t close your eyes

(lie as darkness hardens
lie of our reunion
o lie if god is sleeping
o i believe you now)

darling,
lake pontchartrain will cradle me
and all you left behind
listen:
ever-so-faint slow tambourine
is marching back through time
