  • Look down on the body that you have grown
    Mountains stand around you they're not your own.
    When white squares and bodies are all you see

    Since you broke down
    Since I broke down
    Since we broke down

    Now I jump into your grave and die
    Now my word you'll give up your whole life for me
    And you'll be reborn big and stronger and less alive

    Cross your fingers hold your toes
    We're all gonna die when the building blows
    Cross your fingers hold your toes
    We're all gonna die when the building blows

    And the house you were born in
    Is crumbling at the corners
    Sagging skin and feet of crows
    Feet of crows

    Now I jump into your grave and die
    Now my word you'll give up your whole life for me
    And you'll be reborn big and stronger and less alive Writer/s: LAURA MARLING
