lyrics

ancient honey

i believe in the evening
and the rooster that crows
i’m a featherless peacock
wearing nightingale clothes
have you ever been left somewhere
have you ever been cold
well then you know, that it’s not so hard to go

i should have let lightning strike
as we walked around like mummies waiting for the afterlife
i should have built the oasis
where we’d drink like it's the first time we have ever been hydrated
laughter like waterfalls
fills the heart of the sphinx with 10,000 jugs
i should have spelled it out
instead i drew pictures you couldn't figure out...

ancient honey seals our lips
as we go pantomiming hieroglyphs
on and on and on and on

we are blind we are buried
upside-down pyramids
run my fingers along these walls
feel the messages
may we echo forever
as i give you this pose
let your arms wrap around me
as the eternal rooster crows
