The third release from my upcoming album, bed.


Outside billions of hearts are beating
Under sheets, ours meet like the last two alive
Biology beseeches us to be breeding
He he - can we survive

When we've missed the whole point of the creating collision
Of seeds species and stars
I don't know why or what made the decision
But the one for me you are

It's a joy dear to join you in your silence
In the black in this lack of light, we're unknown
To know is a verb of unspeakable violence
But I can't leave you alone

I'm breaking through into that hole where you've been hiding
Your sin your skin your scars
I don't know why or what did the deciding
But the one for me you are

Two outlaws here tarry and talk
The town around lit with pitchforks
Fire for the firebrands
The rabble roared our rebels ran
I read this somewhere in a book
A tale in which refuge I took
As long ago I came to know
How different I was to those

Whose hearts beat loud and proud in mocking and derision
Who would put us apart
They'll never see nor hear of our division
Those billions of beating hearts


released January 27, 2021
