Spun

Album: Hiss Spun (2017)
  • I lift my eyes, I slow my gait
    And I never wanna see you again
    You leave me restless, you leave me hung
    You leave me coiled, you leave me...

    Spun, spun, spun

    Awaken in a tangle of wire
    I slept desperate, trying to reach you
    You leave me reckless, you leave me sick
    I destroy myself and then I want it again

    Spun, spun, spun, spun
    Spun, spun, spun

    Heavy love
    Coiled and spun

    A brute, an angel, and a madwoman
    A most elegant impediment
    Was there from the start
    Waiting and repeating within me
    Waiting and repeating

    My problem is their down throw and upheaval
    And my enquiry is as to their working
    And my effort is their self-expression
    But I was only rock, dust, water, and ice
    And animal instincts all along

    The hyperosmia and the base sense
    The prodrome and the aura
    The shadows and the sleep deprivation
    The trichomes and the deliriants

    Cut through the fear conditioning
    To finally understand
    It was all and everything or nothing
    And all and everything or nothing

    And all and everything or nothing
    And all and everything or nothing
    And all and everything or nothing
    And all and everything or nothing

    And all and everything or nothing
    And all and everything or nothing
    And all and everything or nothing
    And all and everything or nothing
