lyrics

It is unusual
That we cannot fulfill
The orders that were made;
We know them very well.
A casted replica,
A trapped ephemera,
It is so very clear,
Concrete, equivocal.
Two finite floating points,
The shortest distance
Between them is a line,
But it’s not accessible.
And somehow all involved
Resolved to work through
Poetic modes instead,
And then their language said…

Between eye and brain;
What matter is this?
Between brain and language;
What matter is this?
Between language and mouth;
What matter is this?

It was impossible,
Yet we are breathing here.
The space is manifest,
This fiction is locale.
A living atmosphere,
We swell with metaphor,
Perspiring salty drip,
We bloat from moving air.
Sound-image masonry,
The mortar moistened well,
Chew on it for a while,
Until it starts to move.
My lungs fill awkwardly,
I think they’ll crystallize.
This soggy walk can slow,
My weighty flesh will fold.

Between eye and brain;
What matter is this?
Between brain and language;
What matter is this?
Between language and mouth;
What matter is this?

Between eye and brain;
What matter is this?
Between brain and language;
What matter is this?
Between language and mouth;
What matter is this?
