  • [Verse 1]
    Trust in love
    Just as you are
    Reaching without watching
    The switches on the wall

    [Verse 2]
    Sound doesn’t go away
    In habitual silence
    It reinvents the surface
    Of everything you touch

    [Verse 3]
    As you mouth my name
    I’m older than glass
    I’m kicking at the corner
    Recycling air

    Dirt on the bed (Here)
    Dirt on the bed (Here, here)

    [Verse 4]
    For all I know
    I might not suffer
    A resurrection
    That’s always been true

    [Verse 5]
    On repeat
    Without a function
    And no confession
    Recycling air

    Dirt on the bed (Here)
    Dirt on th? bed (Here, h?re)
    Dirt on the bed (Here)
    Dirt on the bed (Here, here)
