this is where time goes to die keep me up all night a moments gone by i haven’t slept but my skin is awake his breath is a substance my body can’t help but take hung in the space in between touch expectation remembrance it brings me to my knees be still my heart these time zones and rivers hold our hands so far apart time wails and dies as they fly to the other side of mountain ranges muddy fields open skies suspended in a wormhole that spits me back and forth between those last sweet moments and the next time I touch down to you this is where time goes to die my roots gasp for air find your breath wrap around each exhalation sprouting now in new directions i miss you more than Im brave enough to say september is dragging her feet chest counting the days with every heart beat i tired hard not to look in your eyes this is the place where time goes to die

Black snake, black snake carving through the land scaring life away breathing in tar sand Black smoke, black smoke choking out the light in the shadows, in the dark is where we take up the fight Slithering beneath the earth from magic northern realms the snake is just the messenger of demons at the helm who from their corporate fortress humans' legacy decide conceal with screens and flashing lights the quickly rising tide it's coming, oh it's coming the witches of the world who haven't yet been burned are rising up to fight the executioners in turn they summon up the spirits of the soils and of the tress who now, exploited for to long, are shaking themselves free the ground is shaking the sky is breaking the earth won't stand for the mess we're making maybe none will be spared the wrath of crusty earth the demons and the witches all bear the human curse but maybe when the skies are blue again we'll start anew grasp life for the many from the clenched jaws of the few we're coming, oh we're coming Black snake, black snake carving through the land scaring life away breathing in tar sand Black smoke, black smoke choking out the light in the shadows, in the dark is where we take up the fight

you can keep him up all night give him space or hold him tight but men are always telling lies they’re so good at telling lies you look at me and look right through i try to hold on but I’m falling into you bite my tongue keep my eyes wide feel you moving inside and I’m scared too its not fair but its true he’ll never love you like you want him to its not fair but its true

I've gotta get out of the place where the trucks crawl to sleep and wait for the night I've gotta escape to the river up north that stares out through the eyes of a snake If I were left up to my own devices I’d probably plant trees every day in the sunlight instead I work to make money to give to my landlords and bosses who left up to their own devices drain rivers and clearcut the forests I don’t think I can still swim in the snake I always wear black cuz this life is a god damn wake I’ve gotta get out of this place where the walls watch each move with their cold glassy eyes I’ve gotta escape to the mountains where even the sun hides behind the moons face i try so hard not to run away but Ive got to leave this parched haunted bay the sawtooths they beckon to me but ghosts follow everywhere choking out the sweet clean air there is no where to run

inside waiting for release pacing spilling words to me pen pressed to the page the ink tracing memories hold them close now they’re FADING outside stamped with bloody ink fingers letter opening gulls fly screeching over head wish was me instead hold me close now I’m WAITING for the collapse twist open bars boil down the herbs slather on scars left by the lash out of the ash fire to the prison industrial complex soon you’ll be released but you will never be free your voice comes thin through the line minutes click so quickly by our eyes ever fiercely dry pacing the outside you still wait inside TIME TO CHOOSE SIDES

i once travelled to a world with no cops no one paid rent or worked for a boss and every table was built for as many as wanted to sit and share a meal and there our friends who were stolen by fire bullets and alcohol walked and laughed among us again grew grey and taught us oh so much more so when I say see you there I mean to see you when we sail beyond the waves that bring our old gods to their knees (fuck the police) see you there in that place where no one sleeps outside unless they are sleeping under stars where they please yeah I hope to see you there there the spirits were left in the ground extraction came right to a halt the land was given back to the elders from whom was so violently torn and our loved ones who’d been locked behind bars came home to our families we swore to each other we’d keep ourselves safe and we swore we would keep ourselves free so when I say see you there I mean to see you on the other side of the flames that burn the castles and estates (fuck the state) see you there when we take the streets to save our own damn lives how many more deaths will it take friends, I know I’ll see you there so tell me the movements not just in my head cerulean sky after streets run with red in the rubble of this world let us arise when you promise to see me there would you look in my eyes
