lyrics

You held my head and washed the salt out of my hair
you'd know for sure what I am and where to go from here
that's the name that I used to cross out, but you'd know that
from where we lie, the stars align across the sky in a dotted line

I took it in and watched the spinning of my star
You'd say it's so old but younger than we could ever know
I'd forgotten but now I'm caught up in that thing that you said
tucked between sleeping bags: that within our eyes for just a glance we could catch the planet's dance

along your side is drawn a guide to the answer
that sum of mind I'd left behind in that body-rind
this spin is mine

the creator had a name but she never had to cite her source
but in due time we're bound to find at least one other kind
as we travel around this axis towards the sun
you'd set the course: a heading for the glinting eye
of fractured ice and hidden tides
