Salty Tongues

I'm gleaning sounds,

you gave ‘em to me
written in your eyes, heard it in yours sighs


I here the music,

written in your mind
behind the lie

and the wasted masses

corral their fears

scream at the sun with salty tongues

and their twisted caskets

been open for you
In our mausoleum


and I feel like dying every morning
but its heaven tonight
dwell in secret longing
but its heaven tonight

come lay your head down

you know what I need
the rising sun on salty tongues

in the light of dawn

we’re on our knees
and I come undone
