lyrics

There’s eight ways
She said her lashes flicked down
Mint in the glass
Stirred round and round
Sat right there
Tried to take a pass

But with my fur couldn’t grab the glass
With my fur couldn’t grab the glass

Deer gave me
A kind a side eye then
Like a sleek animal
She did not bend

Grabbed a slice in my jaw and gave it a tweak
Grabbed a slice in my jaw but I was too weak
Oh I was too weak oh
I was too weak oh
I was too weak oh
I was too weak oh
8 ways to see us
And 9 to die
It’s all connected
Happens when you cry

8 ways to find out
And 9 to go
It’s all linked
And it happens slow

Yeah yeah you’ll see
It goes real low
Yeah yeah you’ll see
It goes so low

Eh
Eh

This is what she told me
This is how I knew
We’re matter reduced
As thin as sin
Matter made
O so thin
O so thin
See us, believe us
And then you win

Coming to know
We existed right there
Past tangles and confusions
A dot past a care

Spirit’s how you crush it
Curving cross the floor

If you step slightly out
You’ll fully get more
Step slightly out
Definitely get more

Time and space
Expanded for this
I’m so real, you’re so sure of it

Then you come
And then we’re here
Rustling in your freckles
Feeling in your hair
Feeling your fears
And making it clear

Feeling
that this feeling
is the whole damn world
And this feeling
Don’t cause strife
Cause this feeling
Can be your wife

Such revisitations
Constitute a life
Such revisitations
Constitute a life
Such revisitations
Constitute a life
Such revisitations
Constitute a life

8 ways to disappear
Two to hold
If you close your brain and breathe
The odds’ll let you know

We tell it out
All soft and clear

This feeling is a whole world
And you can be its wife
Such revisitations
constitute a life
Such such revisitations
constitute a life

Deer gave me
Kinda high-five then
One with room to grow
Small paws moving
Through the air
I lifted and reached
And tried to care

I lifted up then
And felt the air
(Repeat)
