Rhizome

Back




I’ll carry the load
Heavy as a stone
When the only thing I leave behind are weeds and broken bones


Black trees lining the road
Silent and secretly I stole
I dug holes to feed my soul


It was me
It was me
Slowly you fall asleep


And the fool got caught in the trap
Just a glow in the night
Oh you always strike the matches like a villain


It was me
It was me
Slowly you fall asleep


The venom I spread could kill a whole pack of wolves
And your head is full of it
Oh I swear you are so precious to me
But this is as far as I can go my love
This is as far as I can go my love


Rough cheeks rubbin’ the cold white ground
Shallow we’re breathing in and out
I sow the seeds of a rhizome


The ivy has grown up the walls of your house
And I outline our story so as to make it sound like nothing really happened
Things that you know to be true


It was me
It was me
Slowly you fall asleep
It was me
It was me
Slowly you fall asleep


This is as far as I can go my love
This is as far as I can go my love
Oh this is as far as I can go my love
Oh this is as far as I can go my love
