Light Streams

  • You and I have become entwined
    Where the calcium meets the currents at the shoreline
    I watch you lace the light across the lines
    As you die oil pours from the sky
    Engine breaks, engine blows, flicker and fade
    I stop, look to the skies with an open mouth
    The darkness fills my lungs

    This place is a wasteland, your wings are mine
    The lights move through the ether
    Bellow machines, climb mountains, swim in streams of tar

    I will hunt the one that burns out the beacon
    There's nothing else for us to do here
    But cut the sun from its mooring
    We will cut the sun from its moorings

    Our hands blister as we hold them in the light streams
    Our hands blister as we hold them in the light streams
    Our hands blister as we hold them in the light streams
    Our hands blister as we hold them in the light streams Writer/s: DANIEL COPEMAN, RACHEL ANNA DAVIES, THOMAS JACK FISHER
