building a home deep in the hillside mining for gold sage, bone and pine and dynamite on your back waiting out a change in the weather chase what’s been thrown blazing cross the blurred horizon you, light inside the mountain you, breathing like a beacon grown with the pain shedding your stretched skin changing your face digging your pyres and trenches on my knees underneath the weight of the wonder moon takes its shape shifting from its slumbering season you, light inside the mountain you, breathing like a beacon tender hunger catch a tiger hunter brother shudder splendor oh how you feel everything you fire in your throat ribs full of land mines stars shaped like stones guiding you down the coast line open hands hoping for your voice in the ether i’ll stay standing when we reach the rising waters you, light inside the mountain you, breathing like a beacon you, light inside the mountain you, breathing like a beacon

wrapped up in the lion’s mane blinking at the brightest things circling round the dragon’s wings safe beneath the water flickering as the fire sparks digging up your perfect parts soaring high above the dark sailing through the water running running running, running running running running, running setting out across the longest night stars torch down, burnt lanterns beaming bright tumbling through the ether’s feast charting undiscovered seas buzzing like a honey bee pulsing through the water running running running, running running running running, running running running running, running running running running, running

dark as thunder, hot as heat lightning flashing on repeat make me want you, baby can’t you hear my battle cry rip apart the blazing sky how I want you, baby I feel you underneath it all I feel you feel the spitfire start to howl cosmic kindling spinning out make me want you, baby steal the surge inside my heart jagged atmospheric spark how I want you, baby I feel you underneath it all I feel you unleash the blinding light that you are, that you are unleash the blinding light that you are my burning star holy tempest on your street bolt of electricity make me want you, baby don’t you feel the strike of smoke don’t you want someone to hold like I want you, baby I feel you underneath it all I feel you unleash the blinding light that you are, that you are unleash the blinding light that you are, that you are unleash the blinding light that you are, that you are unleash the blinding light that you are my burning star

I’ve been waiting I’ve been praying all my life navigating how to breathe beneath the tides I’ve been wondering if I’ve been underneath your spell constant hunted in my mind & you clanging like the dinner bell I don’t wanna know it I already know you’ve been searching bright lights shining in the dark loan shark lurking take back what you’re owed or fall apart it gets harder heavy water takes your breath hollow altar in your mind you tear it down to find that you already know it & you don’t wanna know deep sea diving deep sea diving deep sea diving I’ve been hiding riding up along the shore water treading bracing tight against your trojan war but you’ve been coming rip tide rushing all my life pull me under, out of sight just tell me what you want but I already know it yeah, I already know deep sea diving deep sea diving deep sea diving deep sea diving deep sea diving deep sea diving I’ve been waiting I’ve been praying all my life

flew so close to the sun that I could almost touch it didn’t end up among the stars, but now who knows if I even wanted it did I even want it? got so hot with the heat that I could almost breathe it thought I’d catch with the sweetest spark, but now who knows if I even wanted it did I even want it? maybe that’s as high as I’m ever gonna get maybe it’s time to get easy, get grounded maybe I was on the wrong plane the whole time shoulder to shoulder with the birds in the low lit sky got so close to your face that I could almost taste it memorized all your shapes and sounds, but now who knows if I even wanted it did I even want it? got so high on the thrill that I could only feel it dark & drinking the saddest swill, but now who knows if I even wanted it did I even want it? maybe that’s as close as I’m ever gonna get maybe it’s time to get lonely, get haunted maybe I was on the wrong train the whole time shoulder to shoulder with the pack running in the moonlight I can see you moving in the dark spinning sorcery in the stars & maybe that’s as far as I’m ever gonna get maybe it’s time to get simple, get gutted maybe I was in the wrong lane the whole time shoulder to shoulder with my grief under pastel skies

all the bees are dying at my feet crawling round cause they can’t find the queen and I am in the high rise buzzing sweet / hovering I am humming high above the ridge looking down on your trail of spit following like honey to your lips / quivering ooh, shoot me the moon down ooh, shoot me the moon down pollen in your teeth sweet drunk and beastly clover & white heat you got the latchkey how do you haunt me when you can’t catch me silent as the colony’s collapse sleep it off, learn how to adapt melting down your cities made of wax / flickering ooh, wrestle the moon down ooh, wrestle the moon down

stars strewn across your face skin to mouth, mouth to bourbon you burning like the sun and I cannot stop lookin open your mouth ocean of birds tumbling down open your mouth open your mouth just one more time mmm I’m listening to sad songs shooting towards the flame driving cross west texas through the night hand against the burner stupid kid, you know better eye of the storm lightning I’m holding tryna burn me up eye of the storm tornado warning from inside your lungs you got me listening to sad songs you got me pining in the dark you got me drunken at the dance hall rubbing my hands to make a spark you got me swept up by the river you got me sinking like a stone you got me falling, yelling timber you got me talking on the telephone you got me I’m preaching gospel truth you’re shooting down the moon you pull it to the ground but up here in the hills I become the hunter finger on the trigger tracking your doe eye’d summer you got me listening to sad songs you got me wondering in the dark you got me drunken at the dance hall rubbing my hands to make a spark you got me swept up by the river you got me sinking like a stone you got me falling, yelling timber you got me talking on the telephone you got me good stars strewn across your face and I cannot stop looking

livin in the hard shell of a ghost praying that the walls communicate I know that I’m too much for your bones driving through the dark & calling late I want more of you than there is to take I want more from this than there is to make of it I want to trespass your golden gate I want to trespass your golden gate tumbling through the air, charting home following a bird across the sky wake up & I don’t know where I’m going wake up & remember you’re not mine I want more of you than there is to take I want more from this than there is to make of it I want to trespass your golden gate I want to trespass your golden gate tearing down the walls, I’m through, I’m thrown chasing every fuse that sparks to light trembling like stars around your throne even when I’m wrong I get it right I want more of you than there is to take I want more from this than there is to make of it I want to trespass your golden gate I want to trespass your golden gate livin in the hard shell of a ghost singing till the walls reverberate I know that I’m too much for your bones driving through the dark & calling late
