lyrics

As we sink I took some time to turn it over alone in my head
because queen anne's lace has never grown
so north of this place, but by some twist of fate
and magpie's white magician gloves are
casting our lot with every wingbeat

if you forget, they said you can play again
give it your best, but I'm bound to forget again

so if that's true then all that I knew
was just a small speck that floats in the blue sea
whose tidal pull is wearing the hull
of continent's edge on down to the bone
and every thread that we've ever sewn
will strain over time and, in any case, is bound to unwind

if you forget, they said, you can play again
give if your best, but I'm bound to forget again

you asked for this, you're bought and sold
on a visionless mould of a house burning down
as you take out the loan

are we just tragically cursed to repeat the same eternal verse
where wherever we stab, the universe feints
just mocking the play?

and if you forget, you can play again
give it your best, but I'm bound to forget again
and again and again
