lyrics

–– Did I Do That ––


what up death
this is
the grass
doing what
it do
lie into
a color
become murmur
dumb hum
human muzak
descend sun
awaiting radiance
is draining
our desire
a performance
imperfection
walks out on
no curtain
necessary
tiny creatures
crawl with
kenotic love
anxious ideas
despite dice
action figures
unfold
full of fear
confusion
a fire
called life
alone
is a noun
not to
fuck with
the stars
have no idea
what they’re
missing

.
.
