lyrics

Post-card love potion
for a magic woman
who knows all of his tricks,
but he’ll try them anyways.
Once she sees
the words jump off the page
like a warm embrace.
Coming from another friend
to a loving friend
singing send me far away,
to a land of honey. Earl Grey.
I’ll take another sip,
til it burns my tongue.
Torches down.
We got new laws.
So he drowns
with a heavy heart,
and a heavy log.
On his heart,
a heavy load.
Washing up on the bank,
rusty chains sometimes break.
Lungs are full of muddy water.
She jumps in the bank
to give a warm embrace
to bring him back to life
for another try
to ask her out on a date
and put the potions away.
He never needed them
anyways.

(I don't need this. 
This kind of soul searching
renders me as dry as a pinecone. 
And my hands are so dry
they're burning. 
I can't breath. 
Where's my dad?)
