show your knives to me
I'll show you how to bleed
cure this curse I keep
color the salt beneath
lost inside the fold
howling for the wolves
chasing the same disease
oh cure show sympathy
I feel the fog hanging over me
crawling down like centipede
lay you bones under the pink
lift the sun
let it cover me
let the birds breathe into


from call the waves, released February 1, 2016
