Wrestling with myself

lyrics

Bottom of the sea
tangled mangled in the weeds
misdeed misdeed
misty mystery
Santa Cruz morning
gotta a salt water tongue
young heart soaring
bloody orange
the sun
mystery mystery
misery comes to me
wet galoshes
gosh it’s waves and lashes
forms shorn limbs and gashes
gaseous lungs breathe
but under the, under me
an undertow
other me
uttering i don’t know
i don’t know
ok i know

cover of dark march, don’t look back
cover the cover
cover cover the cover the track
with my know how lay a bunch of thumb tacks
wriggle screws loose fuse a brutal trap, door
enemies sending me SOS, tapped floor
don’t know what’s hidden
brackish kelp yelp
yep i heard him, they vermin
ether alchy’s seeing demons, they slurring
bloody sermon
but hey, get the cards they dealt
play with wet hands, mushroomed
more holes morel morals tighten the belt
yelp
review windy candlelight sunset
convo envoy speak a tête-à-tête
upset upturn,
sweat sheen, ketamine
kerosene dreams go dark night
wet wood
good thoroughbred
nocturn lock turn
echos, what they said

smile a while in the sunlight
passerby’s eyes stare
nope nothing to see here
yo, I'm 15
pristine
white walls
night fall
krylon waterfall
watching it fall watching it all
scribin lame names
blue line, bus door
new brain Hussein
what you sparkle for?
tide pool
urchin
searching barnacle
detach a little limb
and slip it in
twist and a pull

transform war-torn
unlock Grimlock
blackbird blackbird
emerge from the night
smile awhile in the sunlight
