sweep lyrics – blue foundation

the floor you walk on is smooth. there is no ground there.
magic begins with blood. outside, there are trees,
with concrete under their roots. but i have p*ssed the tombs of kings,
regaled them with pacing, checked bins for food and wrappings.
i have scoured the seas for miles, cloaked my face with ash.
my fingertips opening, accepting my time.

the dark cylinders of half-smoked cigarettes
for me, i’m your sorrow
calling in your dreams
for me, i’m your shadow
howling in the streets

water chimes in the sp*ce between rocks,
speakers discharge and laughter is in the air,
gl*ss divides us,
empty bottles
mark the steady sweep of day

tomorrow, i will walk the streets
and steel myself for the familiar. your eyes
will not settle, a hunger. you’d be happier in your grave.
when we meet, share stories, you stretch me. i see,
i see a semi-circle of teeth.

the dark cylinders of half-smoked cigarettes
for me, i’m your sorrow
calling in your dreams
for me, i’m your shadow
howling in the streets
