about

This is a bit of a musical patchwork job, using stolen bits from, well, Sondi.

lyrics

Kill me now before I live too well
before my wrongful will is discovered
this will bother me

take me down to where we failed so well
before the gates of hell I'll uncover
If I live another day

All that I ever asked for
unbroken thread to hold on
though I am scarred and rope burned
help me peel my fingers back

there's a signpost telling you nothing at all
where elephants go to die
there's a sinking rock under bushes that block
our paeleontologist eyes

I'd give you a flower if I only had hands
I guess I'll just sit here in shock
I'll sit and wait here until you disappear
sink into the ground with this rock
