lyrics

First there was the lamb on knocking knees
and three dead seasons that came to me
horn down skull foot and the skull of bees
I am a secret and i'll never leave

Dip me breast deep in descended bone
and the black ram shuffle in the year of old
alone among the kids and mutton fold
I was a secret and I never told

Atlas eater with a jaw for blues
and penny eyed man of wounds
bones unbuttoned in a halfway swoon
leave me out to dry in the skin at noon

Old cock from nowhere and the heaven's egg
hatched in the wind on one broken leg
hard times and hunger was all she said
with capricorn and cancer i share my bed

You by the cavern under the stairs
rung bone and blade all tangled and snares
metaphor midnight in feather nettled hair
I was a trigger tripping on your stares

Black tongued and tipsy from the broken bottle
pin legged and pickled on death's black rattle
hunger and speed and the white bear throttle
I fucked adam and god it was awful
