lyrics

If you weren’t standing in the shade
You didn’t feel as if you were home
You found solace when you’re shadow disappeared
You felt grounded by tree roots
And when you’re silhouette would stretch and fade

Don’t tell the sky I’m going away
But I bet she already knows
I bet she already knows
That I’ve dreamt of the dirt
Smearing on my face until I’m part of the earth

With the rest of me slipping down the back of my head
Oh I’ll never spit this out

Each leaf covered by the next
Until I fall and swish them all away
Parting down the middle like Auburn’s hair
When she’d climb up on me
When she was feeling bad
Only when she was feeling bad

Now you cling to the side of the house
Like dead vines
Convinced they’re still alive
You’re convinced that I’m just sleeping
But I’ve dreamt of the dirt
Exactly how I pictured
No ideals of mine besmirched

She’s voiced just like a shadow
Only hues of gray
Screaming
“Oh, I never wanna leave your crosshairs”
