about

a little nod to one of my favorite places.

lyrics

meet me in the abbey at a quarter after 4
park the car aside and keep your troubles to the floor
the matriach is a cult
and you're lost inside the brow
of your paisley stars
well whatever goes on it's a loitering sum
tucked away like alcoholics
toiling at this elementary shun

strip your head of all these solitary vines
your silhouette reflects across my vacant mind

stay inside the lines
wary of the friends that expire
count them down to grafts
when calls are left to choir
i feel like ten feet tall
with a palm that reads like bathroom scrawls
jesus christ, your diamond smile
this might kill me once and for all
minutes culled like a couple
but it's nothing so small

strip your head of all these solitary vines
your silhouette reflects across my vacant mind
