lyrics

AIRLIFT
Soulless as a tomb —
solace never comes too soon.
Every single one,
fortune sparing none,
heads above water
like crustaceans in a bucket
climbing up the wall.
To try and float above
that moment when gravity leaves us
with no depth further left to fall.
Two dimensional —
like the surface of the earth
at the bottom.

Crack it open,
Crack it open like an egg.

You can sense an ocean,
but you're a ship in a bottle,
or a snow globe locked in a desert,
or a lighthouse without fog,
or a gear without a cog —
or your mind is like a dog
going around in circles,
not knowing whether to lie down,
or to chase his tail into the ground.

Such small ripples
In a large and violent sea of neutrality.
