lyrics

You slept as she dragged down the wheel last night
Woke in embers of a warmed through life
She never looked up or looked inside
Dysmorphia in velvet slides, who am I?

She's monoxide now, crystal slow dives into her
Base as this drone, brass plate snow
You drove where you had to go

He lifted his hands from the wheel last night
Blasted charcoal through suburban white
He never crawled up or felt inside
December and the neighbours sigh

You slept as she dragged down the wheel last night
Woke in embers of a warmed through life
She never looked up or looked inside
Dysmorphia in velvet slides, why am I?

She's telluric now, grey abasement buried her
Deep as this goes, front yard soak
You drove where you had to go

She's monoxide now, crystal slow dives into her
Base as this drone, brass plate snow
You drove where you had to go
