quicksand lyrics – sleeping at last

“quicksand”

there are wires in between
human heart and machine.
i will wait for mountains
to tell me you’re okay…

on paper my future will lay.
i’ll fold every failure into a crane.

trust is quicksand,
claiming everything i have,
all to give me life, all to give me life.

slow down, hide your eyes!
the sun is setting fire
through gl*ss, branches deep.
i cough only to breathe.

trust is quicksand,
claiming everything i have,
all to give me life, all to give me life.
one thousand more to go,
i’ll send every prayer from below.
i was swallowed by a whale.

slow down, you’re all words
and love is made of yarn.
scissors,
a slip of the hand, a slip of the tongue;
god knows i meant no harm, i meant no harm.

in between every promise and lie there is a kiss.
in between tempers and suitcases there is a kiss.

in between medicine and the sick there is a kiss.
in between arrows, aim, and release, there is a kiss.

(anchors in reverse
lead us back to birth.)
