  • You were young and you'd start
    With a reverence incurred
    There was an echo far and faint
    Beneath the air remained
    You were young and you'd stare
    Where my limbs hung far and fair
    Make a ladder of what folds and climb up in me

    You push and you pull and you tell yourself no
    It's like when you lie down, the vein's growing slow
    You push and you pull but you would never know
    I crept up in you and I wouldn't let go

    There was no light and I swear
    I could see a rearing fear
    I heard the planes moaning back
    I saw the thunder roll or black
    There was no light and I swear
    We sat still in our fear
    Make a ladder of what folds and climb up in me

    You push and you pull and you tell yourself no
    It's like when you lie down, the vein's growing slow
    You push and you pull but you would never know
    I crept up in you and I wouldn't let go

    I carve out the spaces and I
    Imparted graces and I
    I couldn't shake it and I

    I build a constellation lair
    Out of the moles that hovered there
    A fever billowed with the wind
    And I obeyed the sky therein
    I build a constellation lair
    Out of the moles that hovered there
    Make a pardon of what knows and climb up in me

    You push and you pull and you tell yourself no
    It's like when you lie down, the vein's growing slow
    You push and you pull but you would never know
    I crept up in you and I wouldn't let go

    You push and you pull and you tell yourself no
    It's like when you lie down, the vein's growing slow
    You push and you pull but you would never know
    I crept up in you and I wouldn't let go
