lyrics

lover, would you undergo this procedure
would you compensate for the lull in the lion’s share
and innards why do you undulate under cover of night
because this tossing and turning has brought me to the brink of despair
Stand vigil over this roaring drought pouring out of a sordid corpuscular past
this cadaver sports a coat of splintered glass
oh great canyon can you carry the weight of the fluvial fortunes
the diluvian epoch beckons from the grave

what's come before is dead and gone with the winners and losers alike
and the future ain't yet born of our burning breath
to test this hypothesis rests on a leap that the faithful they readily make
but I, for one, just want to give it a rest

Mr. Major, would you underwrite my next nine tries
each alibi undermining the silvery goal
Mr. Major, the governing body has got such a grip on the pipelines
that I fear I can't shake it's hold
little Savior, where were you when I came to be
conveniently culled from the ether, the slivers of sun
your behavior, so abstruse for the better part
of the life I've lived thus far
the seekers roots looms large a distant star

what's come before is dead and gone with the winners and losers a like
and the future ain't yet born of our burning breath
to test this hypothesis rests on a leap that the faithful they readily make
but I for one just want to give it a rest

Going in I know I am

what's come before is dead and gone with the winners and losers a like
and the future ain't yet born of our burning breath
to test this hypothesis rests on a leap that the faithful they readily make
but I for one just want to give it a rest

lover, do you underlie these covers fine
subtly demurring all the time
and lover, do you underpin this house of mine
and can I see you once again when I lose my eyes
