Lyrics by /u/davyjoetee

Breathe in the air,
Feed on the daylight,
Feel the way you’re pulled to the earth,
Oh won’t you stay,
Hero and saviour,
Take away, those that can hurt
Me

I can be single,
I can be freak
Live in the water,
Give to the weak
I can be lazarus
I can be dead
Stand like a statue
Sleep in your bed
I can be goldmine
Spilling out trouble
Sandbags and gas masks
For children of all ages
I can be benzos
Tripping on triple drops
Stopping the dribble with
Six bibs and a double stop
I can be cherry pie
Queen of the ballroom fair
Maiden of beautyville
Wife to the handsome, the rich, the gods

Breathe in the air,
Feed on the daylight,
Feel the way you’re pulled to the earth,
Oh won’t you stay,
Hero and saviour,
Take away, those that can hurt
Me

I can be Lincoln
I can be chained
Chinking like a long line of links
In a rusty chain
Changed for the better
Or at least better than Cheney
Chiming the chim chiminey
Chim chim cheree
Poppin’ like Mary,
Mother of god
When she saw it all fall
Into the hands of an artist
I can be marble, black hearted
Swirling and curling at the core
Crux and the crucifix
I can be medicine,
Skin bone and needle
A magical renaissance
An out-of-this-world-once-in-a-lifetime-feeling


What is it the body wants,
Is it to get to the end of an endless climb?
What is it the body wants,
Is it to live for all time?
[Exit]
