If a flower were a fire
then the forests are in flames
I loved you like an artefact
I lost you like a train
If a heart were a hand, my dear
then Hammurabi's cut out mine
I filled you up like a diaper
I hollowed you out like a mine

The machine was in the thickets
and it lured you toward its lair
I saw it slow devour you
somehow I did not care
The machine was in the thickets
and it lured you toward its lair
I could hear you cold bones snap in two
and I thrived on you despair
and somehow I did not care

If a steel nail were my birthstone
I've long since been hammered down
you were my one hot air balloon
but I brought you to the ground
If vocal chords were fiddle strings
you're the rosin on my throat
you're the surface of a water
where tambourines do float



from The Shore of Your Heart, released October 8, 2016
