lyrics

The door is locked; I’ve said a curse to keep it shut.
My brother’s safe; my brother’s body will stop breaking.

I really didn’t plan to find each foot in front of every other.
I really didn’t plan to find my father’s ropy arms at such a special cant.

The blade goes dull because I’m always talking.
My teeth fall out; I find myself asleep again.

The walls have changed: they make themselves of stone instead of plaster.
Become a faun, become a thing that changes shape.

I didn’t really think about the time I’d spend away from being human.
I didn’t really think about the chance of living somewhere past my teens.

I don’t need food, now, because I’m always talking.
I don’t need air or warmth, because the car can drive itself.
I don’t need water: my cells are bricks in cubby holes.
I don’t need memory: my tongue reads like a book.
