Album: An Awesome Wave (2012)

  • We can't lose touch but we can let go, blue and white gun made from Lego.
    All the vowels vow to hold your name, keep your estate clean of me.
    I've pillowed you so many times this week,
    Close eyes, open, close again, forget and fall asleep.
    The dark seeks dark,
    The dark seeks dark,

    The nights of all my youth pressed into one glass of water.
    Scattered truths, bewildered beast boohoos, we have our weight: ten thousand ladybirds.
    All the vowels vow to guard your name, keep your estate clean, happy.
    Some things lie too deep for tears to well,
    Close eyes open, close again, feel as my body spells
    Dark seeks dark,
    Dark seeks dark,
    The shadow burns across like embers tide paper.
    Darker, darker, darker, darker. Writer/s: Augustus Figaro Niso Unger-Hamilton, Gwilym David Dylan Sainsbury, Joe Jerome Newman, Thomas Stuart Green
