The Old Ceremony Day That I Was Born Lyrics

Last updated: 10/12/2012 07:21:45 PM

I could let go of the will tonight
And surrender to the gears and the motors
I set all in motion until they find
A splintery bed on which to lie

I can almost smell your hair tonight
The hypnotic poison a stand liar
I water and set you out in the sun
But you closed your pedals to everyone

We built to rickety bridge of size
And we nestled and watched as the rivers rise
For every new creature an old one dies
And washes out into the foamy skies

[Chorus]
'Cause you knew the poetry
I just knew the poem
You woke up next to me
The day that I was born

We traded water and greens and blues
And you clumped to my neck as if you knew
That we watch this scene from the basement wall
And our faces would stutter and rise and fall

And I held a rob in up to my chest
But his heartbeats so loud out of fear I guess
So I let it go a lesson learned
Now I haunt my window for it's return

[Chorus x2]
'Cause you knew the poetry
I just knew the poem
You woke up next to me
The day that I was born

Well there's only so much that I can say
Without stealing the words from your dog year pages
'Cause I only started to bend my spines
The ghost of your fingertips lawn my lines
