lyrics

The shovel’s in deeper than the splinters in your hands until they divide each digit from its skeleton. Tearing out like strands until opened wide. The dirt assaults and catapults over your shoulder and is left behind until the hill returns to kill the past you have dug for all this time. Your body takes the form of what it was before you were even born you were even alive. Crippled from the fall in soil you made a hole. The bottom’s where you know that you were meant to lie. The fossils of the ones you loved are draped around your frame beside the rocks. The great collage hung from your arms like ornaments that came inside a box. Decaying dog used mating calls but suffered out of range with a voice that soft. In your mind you waved goodbye to all of the friends you ever lost.
