Epilepsy is Dancing

Album: The Crying Light (2008)
  • Epilepsy is dancing
    She's the Christ now departing
    And I'm finding my rhythm
    As I twist in the snow

    All the metal burned in me
    Down the brain of my river
    That fire was searching
    For a waterway home

    I cry "glitter is love!"
    My eyes pinned inside
    With green jewels
    Hanging like Christmas stars
    From a golden vein

    As I came to a screaming
    Hold me while I'm dreaming
    For my fingers are curling
    And I cannot breathe

    Then I cried in the kitchen
    How I'd seen your ghost witching
    As a soldering blue line
    Between my eyes

    Cut me in quadrants
    Leave me in the corner
    Oh now it's passing
    Oh now I'm dancing Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
