lyrics

[Maudlin Magpie]
I dreamt of your familiar stalking shadows of things
as mastodon mandibles rattle their teeth
from trees the teeth fall
and chew the earth's sprawl
time lapsed and lost under blankets of rot,
fertilized in mulch, gestating for naught
we'll slough this bark
and bear our mark

[Time]
Are we alive or are we dead?
I fell asleep in the garden bed
I’m not a rose and I’m not a weed
My mind is dirt, your words are seeds
Give me room and I promise I’ll bloom
And we I die just dance on my tomb
In the future I’ll feed the worms
We’ll all be dust, you’ll get your turn
My heart is quartz, my soul is stone
We’ll all decay but never alone
Sometimes silence can be a poem
I feel so fake like styrofoam
Wanna live forever like mastodon bones
Wanna live forever like mastodon bones
Wanna live forever like mastodon bones
I’m a live forever like mastodon bones

[Maudlin Magpie]
We crawled out of a mud bath
a primordial soup
this slipstream reality revealing the fruits
of process once
fraught not lost
we watched at Chihuru began placing the eggs
at the center of the mouths open gaping decayed
we watched our death
and creations brea(d)th

[Time]
Are we alive or are we dead?
I fell asleep in the garden bed
I’m not a rose and I’m not a weed
My mind is dirt, your words are seeds
Give me room and I promise I’ll bloom
And we I die just dance on my tomb
In the future I’ll feed the worms
We’ll all be dust, you’ll get your turn
My heart is quartz, my soul is stone
We’ll all decay but never alone
Sometimes silence can be a poem
I feel so fake like styrofoam
Wanna live forever like mastodon bones
Wanna live forever like mastodon bones
Wanna live forever like mastodon bones
I’m a live forever like mastodon bones

[Maudlin Magpie]
And there i break the urn
and breath the ash
inhale remains of these carbon ghosts
these artifacts
they stain my lungs
i cough up earth amnesia
