lyrics

what do we learn
from the miners
just how to recover

what do we burn
in the furnace
anything black

bomb the hills
scrape the ocean
just don’t stop the flow

bound ourselves
by desires
that we can’t fill

when your body gets ocean sick
you gotta lay down flat and be one with it
you gotta - climb up over it
leave the body alone

when your body gets motion sick
you gotta bring things up and be done with it
you gotta - shimmy under it
keep the body at home

everybody's devotion sick
we gotta fuel these bodies with open pits
we drag a - razor over it
make a body a clone

all my brothers were there with me
they were laid down under a flare with me
they were told their riches were coming like drones
better butter the bones

standing in a tenement house
looking at my phone
I step over the ragged and loused
searching for my clone

reverse the flow
tame the waters
time can’t turn back

when you’re underground
you don’t hear the foghorn
just feel the rumble

you feel like it’s over
it’s getting hot

you feel like you’re sober
but you’re not

when your body gets ocean sick
you gotta lay down flat and be one with it
you gotta - climb up over it
leave the body alone

everybody's devotion sick
we gotta fuel these bodies with open pits
we drag a - razor over it
make a body a clone
